The Green Ox: Earth-Valued BuildingHome Improvement in Henderson, North Carolina
Single-needle yurt sewing.
The yurt roof that I had finished in this picture, ended up being the roof of the first yurt that was sent to the Dakota Pipeline Protestors, by Laurel Nest Yur...ts, in an effort to give protestors the ability to winter-over on reservation land. An effort has begun to fund and fabricate as many yurts as possible, so that the protestors can shelter.
If anyone is interested in donating or going to the studio to volunteer time for fabrication:

Now the Western Hemisphere's leading advisor on hybridized handrail systems. Vinyl post sleeves, and painted wooden rail are going to get big, big in the future..., and Im going to be right there with it. We've got handrail designs that are designed to do all of the big, big stuff that other people's designs can't do. They'll never be able to reach the bigness. Mark my words: It'll be big, with my designs.
Laurel Nest Yurts has been working around the clock to provide large, 4-season, Mongolian tents for the protestors at Standing Rock. People can still contribute to the ongoing effort. https://www.gofundme.com/yurts-for-standingrock-2vy3j53h…
On the way to the project, or on the way home...
There are those times when you've given the workday your all, and then some. Those days where you've given your day 150%. Those days where you barely have enoug...h squeeze in your hands to stear the car home. It's on those days where one might turn on the radio and be thankful that Christopher Cross is alive. Those are the days where his voice and melody soothe the aching body, uplift the mind, and give us that final push of soft energy to get home to what matters.
And then there are those days where you are fully charged in the morning. Ready to take on the world. Fire in the belly. Invincible. You take off in the morning, ready to eat the project alive. You turn on the radio, and it's your old friend: Christopher Cross.
The first thing out of your mouth?
"Jesus Christ already, Cross!!!!"
"GROW A SET!!!"
Public Service Announcement.
Attention: this is an 80lb bag of ready-mix concrete.
If you lay this bag into a mixing tub, in order to get it open, you will need to hit it with a shovel, a j...ackhammer, a bazooka, and two panzer tanks.
But, if you are carrying it somewhere important, to mix it, and the weight is killing your back, and there are a bunch of valuables around, a butterfly can land on this bag, and nibble on the corner of the paper, with its little butterfly mouth, and the entire bag will explode like it was hit by a cannonball.
All over your clothes, in your shoes, all over a $150,000 Porsche, all over the Crown Jewels, and all over King Tut's mask.
You've been warned.
