Just spent 3 short, but much-needed, days in the middle of the desert (near Joshua Tree, CA). The silence was so peaceful and I couldn’t believe how much life was in a place which seemed, at first glance, to be barren and desolate. The animals and small desert plants, many which were flowering, were out of this world. Ready to get back to work, and new things abound for the shop, including products from Chabatree and some local Vermont woodworkers. Spring has sprung.
