Most of my photos feature trees. The pictures probably look same-ish to others but every tree is different, and interestingly different, to me.
A stimulating essay by Caleb Crain on timber, wheelwrighting, and translating Homer. You’ll see how it all fits together. Crain discusses George Sturt’s wonderful book The Wheelwright’s Shop, which I also discuss briefly in this essay.
Some posts of mine:
“This is is a classic case-study of how empires re-enact other bygone empires, and in the process, they create geography.” – a thought-provoking post on the history of Ukraine by my friend and colleague Philip Jenkins.
And finally: my (former) colleague and (still) friend Matt Milliner has published a fine reflection on Christianity, Buddhism, art, and Mako Fujimura.
