We moved up there some time ago now, and inspired by mud-wasps and swallows, began to build a house. We didn't have much money, and only my father's old hand tools to work with and learn from, but we had forests of pine standing seasoned after fire ; there… Read full post »

When Anna was in Italy last year for a while I moved to her place with Greersy's rabbits and house-sat, garden-sat, rabbit-sat.
Sat all over the damn place.
