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 be
Without wood.

Everard Hinrichs, quoted by Eric Sloane in A Reverence for Wood

October Morning at Penn State

Thank goodness, another weekend is here. The fall weather in central Pennsylvania is one of the best things about this part of the country. My walk in to work this morning really felt like Halloween was closing in, so I shot some video, first from my deck, then on campus. Warning: you Penn State alums out there will probably get homesick watching it.




Have a great weekend, wherever you are. More great wood next week.
