Quote of the Day

"People often have this idea that money is what is preventing them from doing their dreams. That's very rarely the case. It usually has to do with fear: fear of failure, fear of what people will think. You can go awful far without many resources on the low financial road. In fact, you actually learn more that way. If you have a choice, take the cheap route, always. "

Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly's been one of my favorite writers for a while, he was at Wired for a long time, and was involved with The Whole Earth Catalog/Review mob, too.

A great futurist and alternative thinker. We need a lot more of them.

Today I hid in my shop, finally getting back to building and fixing guitars after a long break brought on by a flood of water, a huge garden and a more than a little fucked up world news overload funk.

It feels good to make sawdust again.

I found the photo on a vintage photo site, but know nothing about it besides the fact that it's freaky cool.
