Alfredo Bosi

As a special Thanksgiving weekend message, I refer my readers to a translation of Alfredo Bosi's essay, the Work of the Hands, translated at my request by Rose Ann Reeser  in 2012 from the original Portuguese. It can be found here:

Included in the translation are Rose Ann's notes regarding the meaning of certain words and their relationship to english. Watch for the word scarf, as that is what I've done to join the pieces of plywood in preparing to assemble Bevins Skiffs.

Amidst the litany of what the hands do, it is important to realize that they also shape the way we think and who we are.

Make, fix, and create...
