Been spending a lot of time around the woodpile lately, and just now ran across a short video entitled "Sarah Explains Woodpiles". My curiosity was peaked as to what exactly there was to explain, so I bit.
So glad I did. In just a few words, Sarah explains the wisdom of the ages with respect to woodpiles...she gets right to the heart of both kinds of people: those who love to build them, and those who love to hate them.
Not sure if the beverage is water or vodka, but Sarah is one inspired Canuck.
What kind of a person are you, really? :-)
The heft and feel of a well-worn handle,The sight of shavings that curl from a blade;The logs in the wood pile, the sentiment of huge beams in an old-fashioned house;The smell of fresh cut timber and the pungent fragrance of burning leaves;The crackle of kindling and the hiss of burning logs.Abundant to all the needs of man, how poor the world would beWithout wood.
Everard Hinrichs, quoted by Eric Sloane in A Reverence for Wood
