May Morris: Embroidery as Art

Before the great uglification that was the 20th century there was a brief period of aesthetic hope led by the prophetic John Ruskin and his followers, most notably William Morris. A 2017 exhibition and catalog brings some much needed recognition to his daughter May Morris. May was probably the best embroiderer the world has ever […]

Whacked the President with a Single Stick

A forgotten and dangerous cousin to modern day fencing, single stick fighting involves a short and inflexible piece of wood. Ouch. Early 20th century notions of physical therapy were obviously different than today as evidenced by President Theodore Roosevelt using single stick fighting as a way to recover from a carriage accident. Here’s how the […]

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Watch

I have a love/hate relationship with computers and the internet. On the one hand I’m thankful for the platform of this blog and podcast as well as instant access to a whole world of useful how-to information and videos. But, the other day while doing an image search for William Blake’s Urizen, I landed on […]

The Monkey Rope

If you haven’t gotten around to reading Herman Melville’s Moby Dick you should. I just finished reading it and, next to the Bible, no other book comes close to Moby Dick’s sprawling, hallucinatory weirdness. It reads like a long prose poem, a philosophical horror novel, a meditation on our relationship with the natural world and, […]

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory

Just purchased your book along with Scott Kellogg's "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living." As a resident of Baltimore City, they're right down my alley! Can't wait to read.
