ready for day 2

Yesterday morning I was greeted by a wailing of hogs trapped in the trap. There were two sows, a boar and a piglet which my friend Ken shot to help rid our forests of this invasive and destructive pest. It was not a pleasant thing, but certainly a reminded of the realities of life.

On a more pleasant subject, our first day of box making led us toward completion of a first box. Today will be more of the same, but we'll have an earlier start.

Richard Bazeley in Australia sent a note about his student's introduction to spoon carving. They were asked to think of their favorite spoon (and each of them had one) and some of them were baby spoons kept in the kitchen drawer. Richard noted that the spoon was the first tool that they had used, and thus we begin to grasp the way that tools and tool use is woven deeply into human culture.

Make, fix, create, and offer to others the opportunity to learn likewise.
