I have had many transformative journeys in my life.  I have traveled, hiked, and liven in wonderful place.  I am fascinated by process:  I want to know how the roof is thatched, how the hut is made, what the cord or thread is, where the natural dye comes from, how the hive or nest is constructed.  These basic constructions are at the root of who we are and what we can do. They are all so very sophisticated in their simplicity.  These forms also speak of community, of building cooperatively using indigenous materials.
