"Open It!"

This is this year's Xmas card... meant more as a bleak, post-season commentary on consumerism.

Maybe it's on account of having a birthday fall on this holiday that, from my perspective, nothing else symbolizes the wanton waste and short-sighted greed of humanity than the wrapping > unwrapping > trashing of gifts. Any visit to the local transfer site after the holiest of orgies is depressing as hell, and a stark reminder that collectively, we as a species, are literally throwing it all away.

Speaking of recycling and never letting go of things: this particular stick is almost thirty years old, and it's still in my little tool-box I use for classroom demos: a fitting implement by which to render trees.
