Designs

Dreams:  I'm sure I've been having them, but I'm not recalling much of them.


Design:  After laser cutting some white oak, which cuts more cleanly than birch plywood, I want to make tessellated tiles like this one.  The difficulty is that it's difficult to come up with a design that is simultaneously clean and preserves all ten five pointed stars around the larger ten pointed ones.  So far the only way I can think of to do it involves making a dodecahedron with each ten stars around an eleventh as one of the pentagonal faces.

On the health front, I've had a revelation.  My joints don't hurt because I'm getting older or the humidity is changing.  My joints hurt because I'm lifting weights at the gym.
