From W. Ben Hunt’s - “How To Build And Furnish A Log Cabin; the easy, natural way using only hand tools and the woods around you.”
Originally published in 1939.
It is a dream of mine to build a small (very small) cabin using only hand tools. It may take years but I’ll do it someday
3rd generation hand-made family cabin on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
i can’t wait to bust out the hammock..
"My mother died rather suddenly when I was eighteen. One thing that I didn’t expect was the amount of resentment I would feel. I know it’s not fair of me to put that sort of thing on other people. But when I see someone walking down the street with their mother, I feel jealous. I know their relationship is going to have its ups and downs, and it’s going to evolve, and it will have this trajectory to it that I’ll never have, and it just seems unfair. Of course I know it’s absurd to talk about fairness in the universe."
"Why is that absurd?"
"Because there’s no such thing as karma. I mean, when you’re a good person, people can sense it and they’ll reciprocate that goodness. But the universe isn’t keeping some balance by guaranteeing you a reward."
“when you’re a good person, people can sense it and they’ll reciprocate that goodness” that’s exactly what i call karma..
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"Can I go down the hill now?"
i’m with you on that one, little man.
