31~ At Home

Tucked into a corner of the living room, immediately adjacent to the open kitchen and dining room, is Geoff's lab... one of his labs. You could count the space he works in when he's running Frankenrouter, or the table in the garage where he's surrounded by the tidily organized drawers of tools and parts. I am hard pressed to think of an area of making, of creating, that he hasn't at least thought about, or dabbled in. Before I go to Google, I ask Geoff. I started listing all of the things I know he can do, all of the projects he's completed, but printing it would embarrassment him. The richness of his accomplishments is noteworthy, and quiet, too... add humble, and modest, to that list.

I frequently daydream about lottery winnings, or a Chickenblog publishing, or ad revenue, windfall, and the fun begins when I oversee the remodel and construction of a workshop... bump out the garage, enclose the carport, add windows, and light, storage, and workstations for seminars and make events. Our stroke of luck would facilitate space and resources for the designing, tinkering, playing, learning, building, and making that we love, and that we love to share. It's nothing to do with dissatisfaction with all we have... it's just a happy notion, a gleeful wish for someone I love, for dreams we measure. Either way, I want to always see him in the golden chair, tinkering and making, in the heart of our Bird House home.

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.

Home IS where we make and do, dream and be.
