This will be the second effort to post. For some reason I was 'booted- while commenting (failed effort) `
The Stuff of Life: Carpentry.
By - The Laughing Jackass.
Pine Barrens were where The "Pineys" lived. The New Jersey working class inhabited The Pine Barrens. New Jersey had the rapid growing suburban industrial people. The industrial corridor was cluttered and very noisy.
Although New Jersey has the most heavily populated area of any state the place were the "Pineys" dwelt the land was quiet. It was almost wilderness. The worker class made moonshine and hid copper stills under boards in a livestock pen.
They were people who were often misunderstood ("The Pine Barrens" - by John McPhee) wrote of them...
These workers "used the fine eye, great ear and good heart." I assume they could verily produce brews.
There was distinctive folklore, dreamlike quiet, and quality quiet in contrast to the clutter noise of machinery.
They tapped pine trees that gave turpentine. The hewed wood, dovetailed furniture, and made with tiny copper nails those thin as thick 'veneer' wooden - Shaker hat boxes.
I once made the entire stacking Shaker boxes set. I gave the prototype as a Gift. I was sad one day.
The Shaker Ovals were given to someone else. Obviously, that was one of the sad memories that remains.
I have wood molds. Walnut tops.
Some day later - I may make more.
Lory Laskey has a painting titled:`
REVOLT OF THE MASSES (1986)
A used carpenter hammer is nailed
The red-rusty nails stain the canvass
This is what happens when people get hit on the head too often. In the absence of international condemnation or ruthless and unrelenting oppression, revolts of the good masses of people is often considered.
There are Wars f Liberation. Some religious sects use a "just war" theory. I suppose the degree of justness depends on the extent of the practical and better alternatives.
Nonviolent Resolution. I guess if one secular Mahatma Gandhi or hillbilly (spiritual/secular - same-same) were handy, He/She might point out to the masses of better humanity - that they are not powerless to speak out.
Word bring connotations. It seem cleat to many people that we people can make Proclamations`
And in Good Conscience.
The only lasting peace is `
A Peace Through Justice.
Sad - Sigh. Philanthropic?
The quality nature in wars?
Barbarians are in their stead.
Peace people are hard to find.
They are around and speak up.
Be careful in PA's, Waynesboro.
Banker jail you!
