You know how the first pancakes of a batch often turn out not very well until you've got the pan at just the right temperature? Well the first pancakes on the new stove, in a new cast iron pan turned out perfectly, if I do say so myself. Yay me.
I've been posting a lot on some pretty basic things. The joys of keeping warm and fed and composting the result. It may be that I'll climb Mazlow's hierarchy at some point, or maybe I'm self actualizing by learning to use a cookstove. I do find my time at the Shack far more fulfilling than my supposedly civilized work life. But change is in the wind at the not for profit, privatized, safety critical corporation, so who knows?
