One night, when Lew Welch was sitting with me by a campfire in the Sierra Nevada & after a long while of silence, he said, “Gary, do you think the rocks pay attention to the trees?” and I said, “Why, I don’t know Lew. What are you driving at?” and he said, “Well, the trees are just passing through.” So, later I came up with this little poem: 
As the crickets’ soft autumn hum is to us 
so are we to the trees 
as are they to the rocks and the hills. 
— Gary Snyder

Woodspotting now has pictures!

It’s been a couple of month since I built woodspotting.com. It grew out of the frustration of current RSS readers, and the tiresome aspect of opening 20+ woodworking blogs to see if they had new content. Today, the site tracks more than 100+ woodworking blogs, and hopefuly sends some more traffic to the blog authors and encourages them to keep posting fresh content. It also saves me a lot of time :)

Today, I made a change to make the site a bit more visual with a running ticker of thumbnail images from the blogs that’ll link back to the original site of the author’s. I’ll be making tweeks over the next few weeks, and hope folks like it.
