Sorry for the bad quality picture, taken through my bug-splattered windshield. I took this last night as I drove into California, and it’s not a trick of the camera. It actually appeared as though there was a line in the sky, separating the warm and the cool light. Any ideas why?

More pictures from my journey today. The thing that the pictures don’t do justice is the blue tint. The volume of air in the canyon is so immense, that is is noticeably tinted blue, just like the sky. Breathtaking. I am also so glad I chose to take the train. Not only do I love trains, but we got free entertainment both directions and more beautiful views. Now it’s time for some rest. Did a lot of walking/hiking today, and tomorrow it’s time to push through to Anaheim!

A year ago today, I visited the Eiffel Tower, and today I visited the Grand Canyon. Both of these happened as result of “detours” from out-of-state (or country) work. I’m really lucky to get to do what I love and then reap benefits like this.

Driving into the Arizona sunset. Heading west. Heading home.

I experienced Meow Wolf today. Wow. Sensory overload for sure. It was an excellent lesson in non-linear, free-roaming storytelling, along with tons of design inspiration. 10/10 would recommend.

Last night we opened our last main stage show of the season at SCRT. Today I leave the gorgeous skies of Trinidad for the last time this summer. It’s been a pleasure working with old friends and new ones. So glad I was able to be a part of this amazing season.

Back in the saddle one last time for the summer. Here comes God of Carnage! #theatre #lightingdesign

I hope that whoever makes these benches (found at just about every TSA checkpoint) enjoys my tax dollars.

My office is celebrating its 63rd birthday today. I wish the castle still looked like this every night.

Last night we opened “Evita,” and once again I couldn’t be more proud to work with this group of talented theatrical professionals. #FromTheGutterTheatrical #lightingdesign #theatre #colorado

I had a crazy weekend. Friday I drove from Denver to Lincoln and saw a show at Thespian Festival. Saturday, starting at 9am I worked with Troupe 5869 to load in, tech, and run 2 performances of “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Be.” After strike at 11pm, I took a nap before driving to Trinidad, CO starting at 1:30am. After the incredibly boring 580 mile drive, I arrived and began teching “Evita” at SCRT. All I can say is wow. As exhausted and frustrated as I was at times, I truly enjoyed this weekend. I love that I get paid to do what I love AND I get to work with people I like. #yaytheatre
