A Northern Version of YardWork And so up here in the land of snow, I was in need of doing some yardwork here recently and then more of….sometimes daily. So I thought I would post my version, of what that means for one such as I, who live’s in the north country come winter. So if you have your boots on and if you will please grab a shovel, then let us proceed for this mornings clean-up…. ....digging out my path to the shop has become a daily thing for me as I shovel...
WoolGathering I Go ....not all who walk know where they are going,not all who wonder know how to use their mind,not all who waunder are lost in the woods of their choice,but then who but a poet can woolgather on paper just as in the forest…. These are the memories I create, ....of waunderings out here in the woods, ....that encompass me on all sides of my environmental up-bringing, ....where often the one doing the dreaming, .....awakens to find that all is more then a dream.̵...
I can’t believe it’s been just over 3 weeks already since I picked this stuff up. This year is cruising past me. I saw an ad one morning – only a few minutes old – for a very large pile of scrap wood, mostly superior-grade alder, but with a mix of some other things in there, like plywood, and walnut. I wrestled internally for a bit. Do I really need more wood? The answer, it turned out, was yes. I wrote, mentioned I was a budding woodworker, and would love to find uses...

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

Colors of Shellac from a Kayak ….where art thou going oh gods of kayaking,“i go out in the tops of mountain ponds”,who is the one that you paddle along with by your side,“i paddle with the love of my heart who longs with me….” ”—-and so i turned the page to write again some words of wood—-” ....and so the gods came down to play amongst a colored backdrop,completed with water that still holds dreams of blue liquid desire,...
Woods of Head ....machine head, gear head, power head, my head…. —-and so my head starts pounding in anticipation of what can be, what can i get my fingers into now, what can i wrap my hands around to day, this hour is the need of finding some form of verbal physical exclamation power point…. ....wood head, pegged head, draw bore head, once again a head…. —-head figured from too much in-put information, time release capsules for creating out-put infor...
The Wild of the Woods ….and so i walk the footsteps of those who precede my thinking, these are the spirit’s of rustic woodlands as found herein, and it is they who speak in an un-known tongue from the forest of living, a language that not many today have the time to learn away from the clatter…. —-clatter comes in many shapes and forms, but the duty of clatter is all-ways the same, and that is to distract one from the beauty of silence, needless to say that clat...
More trash pick… I mean, recycling this past Thursday night. Someone in the neighborhood threw out what in the dark after work seemed like it might be plastic, but back in my garage turned out to be something with the texture, and a bit of the overall look of a plum, with smooth brown skin that seemed to have a purplish cast to it. I think it’s either a whole small tree, or the top of a very tall larger tree, as it doesn’t seem to branch in the way a branch would. It̵...
