No small amount of effort is being expended by your humble narrator these days. The so called Magic Lantern show, a vast and rambling amalgam of photographs and text which attempts to encapsulate the story of a certain Creek, is being rebuilt for 2013. The document has been allowed to swell, in the name of inserting everything learned since its last incarnation was crafted. A positive use of my time, to be sure, but something which is all consuming.

One of my bad habits, or good (depending on your point of view) is “burning the midnight oil”. It is an easy thing for me to lose track of the time, lost in a supernal state of focus on my task, and suddenly realize that the sun is rising. Doing this for a day or two at a time is not that much of a drain, but on a large scale project like the Magic Lantern- this can literally mean weeks lost in a surreal and quite odd personal time zone.

I’m preparing the document in expectation of a nearby date, one which will be announced here soon, during which I’ll be timorously venturing forth into the new year. The retooled slide show presentation will incorporate much of the “discovery” of 2012 into it, and expand on several sections which time constraints or ignorance made short. More on this next week, at your Newtown Pentacle.

  1. Mitch, will the “re-tooled” Magic Lantern show be audience “interactive”?

    • Not exactly sure what you mean. Will I splash the audience with creek water during it? Maybe.
