Here, I will share in 5 posts, the notes of my mind, the crumbs and scratchings and conclusions I've arrived at through "doing time".… Continue

Chopping wood isn't easy! Most city folk who try it, look like bumbling fools. Even if they manage to do okay, they last only a few short minutes. It's a workout!



I've chopped many a pieces of wood back of the house on our farm - so let me share a few of my insights into this very misunderstood art. It is a very good metaphor for teaching -…
