I made it though the first day of a two day show. Traffic and sales were slight. Hand crafted objects and art don't have the seasonal buzz that is generated by home electronics. One of the visitors in my booth today showed me photos of Hawaii on his iPhone. We are so quickly captured by bells and whistles and we are so poorly trained in the discovery of deeper meaning.

But when the current crop of iPhones and electronic buzz generating devices take the places reserved for them in landfills and recycling centers, the small boxes I sold today will still be beautiful, reflecting the beauty of the forests and the intentions of their maker.
