Dr. Megavolt - Burningman 2006

I didn't go to Burningman
I didn't light the fire
I stayed away on Labor Day
And thought about desire

Calling Las Vegas, Charlotte, Greensboro, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Orlando, Atlanta, Phoenix, Tucson...etc.

An article entitled America's Top Fifteen Emptiest Cities spends much of its time looking at rental and homeowner rates (a further examination of the issue can be found at what ABC calls its "Partner Site" here) but doesn't see this as an opportunity to create jobs (yes Kermit: Green Jobs) and communities that are, at least in terms of energy creation and usage, happily self-sustaining.

the houses and streets: so empty, depressed
time to do something to rise to the test

Middle Earth Sentries

Image taken last fall at the Silverton Reservoir.

I have to start making money or stop eating...I will be devoting most of what little free time I have to writing a book, to be followed by more of that there book writing.

If anything shakes loose I will post about it here, otherwise thank you to the few (the happy few) who have dropped in for visits here at Mortaljive. All of you are god.
