i'm sorry for not responding to your comments! for some reason i couldn't read them on this computer. if anyone is reading this, please leave a comment. when someone drops me a line, it's like finding an orchid growing out of a sidewalk crack.
gosh, werebrock was almost eaten by the piranhas working at a corporate bookstore! it's not a very interesting story though
so here's a picture of the hut, worked on it with Beautiful Day and Johnny Tsunami for an hour, getting in that thatched spruce. maybe tommorrow we'll finish it
we also found, living under the cat tails, some springs! the project after the hut will be to excavate the spring a bit so as to have a bathing spot, a drinking spot, and maybe even swales to grow more cat tails, willows, horse tails, pond slime! this website has a good explanation of what that process will look like. http://www.wimmark.com/springs.htm
On another note, my co-op loving, liberation theology dad and I are listening to some anarchist speeches essays and having heated discussions. Real periods of growth (for him). ;) jk, jk. I invite you all to listen to any of them if you sample and find them stimulating.
Here's Bob Black's famous "The Abolition of Work".
Here's Derrick Jensen's interview on Freak Radio Santa Cruz, in two parts.
Here's a great speech called "US Off the Planet" with Chellis Glendelling and Ward Churchill.
Keep it funky and feral
