getting real

This morning, before leaving Madison for our trip back to Arkansas, we visited one of the world's finest farmer's markets, and it is one of the very right things about living in the USA. The Dane County Farmer's Market surrounds the Wisconsin State Capitol on four sides. Some of the farms represented have been farmed by the same family for over 150 years. And so I often need to remind myself that the wisdom of the hands is not just about woodworking but about all the many real things the hands touch and from which wisdom is really drawn.

I won't bore you with all the details, but will remind you to make fix, create and grow...
