All that is gold does not glitter;
Not all those who wander are lost.

Minecraft Halloween #1

The old that is strong does not wither.
Deep roots are not touched by the frost.

Minecraft Halloween #2

From the ashes a fire shall be woken.
A light from the shadows will spring.

Minecraft Halloween #3

Renewed shall be blade that was broken;

Minecraft Halloween #4

The crownless again shall be king.

I remember thirteen.

At thirteen I started to ride the subway alone. Thirteen was when I put away my Matchbox cars and picked up Rolling Stone. It was after-school peanut butter cups and cream soda from the deli on Bond Street. At thirteen I got to try a little of dad's beer, and at thirteen I swore I'd never drink that godawful stuff. Thirteen was tremulous fear and quaking desire. Thirteen was when childhood faded into the mist, and the future beckoned slyly from the car.

I remember thirteen well, but now I see it for what it really is:

make a wish

Thirteen is the time of angels.

Happy birthday, my mad, bad, sad, brilliant beautiful man.

Today, before Quinn's birthday dinner, the boys and I went to the International Steampunk City festival in Waltham. Only for a few hours, sadly, so we only saw a few of you.

Lots of pictures on Flickr, but here are two standouts:

Mayor Grymm and his "right hand man," Emperor Justinian Stanislaus.

That hand was a work of genius. It was fully articulated and frankly kind of creepy.

It's not quite a police box but it'll have to do.

The Doctor here is demonstrating his iOS sonic screwdriver.
