Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millenium. Plant sequoias.
Say that your main crop is the forest
that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.

Say that the leaves are harvested
when they have rotted into the mold.
Call that profit. Prophesy such returns.
Put your faith in the two inches of humus
that will build under the trees
every thousand years.

- Wendell Berry, The Mad Farmer Liberation Front

I've been dying to share the news with you all of the Winter Handmade Market coming this November, hosted by Abby Try Again and {Frolic!}, at the lovely Ace Hotel. The vendors will include Amanda Blake, Shanna Murray, Postal Press and Herriott Grace.

On another note, I'm researching messenger bags - particularly how to make them - and am hoping to hit the wide wild ocean this week while the weather is still good.
