this will not become a dog blog

Rowan is pretty much all encompassing.

i was in Vancouver for a week leaving Jay with the responsibility of entertaining, training and power struggling with our growing, teething, co-management dependent beast. now it's my turn while Jay's away this week.

we have a routine. run around outside for an hour, chase after me and jump on the couch inside for 15 minutes and then nap for 45 minutes. repeat.

it's warming up and the ground is slowly revealing a buffet of smells for Rowan to overstimulate his newly found sense of smell. already an hour more light than Vancouver.

my time in Vancouver was inspiring. met and reunited with Community Economic Development and Social Justice buffs from across the country. shared ideas and solidarity in moving the movement. caught up with good friends and my sister. the highlight was catching a Bobs and Lolo show.

...and that's a wrap

We spent the day in Carcross where Jay's been working on the filming of what will eventually be an animated, or rotoscoped, telling of "How We Got Fire".

Rotoscoping requires drawing over live action film. Live action film requires a lot. So many people, so much food, so much running around, so much coordination. They'll be filming in Carcross for 5 days, animating for 2 months for 6 minutes of film. A production indeed.

Rowan and I spent the day playing with the child stars, entertaining the "grips" and "gaffers", learning about who can speak to whom on set and wondering around beautiful Carcross. It was a gorgeous day.
