The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Finishing touches

Picture hanging

Family heirloomsI'd been resisting putting anything on my newly painted walls. But the edge of the office ended up turning a little wire-filled, between a router and a charging station for all and sundry.

Mark had the bright idea of hanging up two small family heirlooms to draw the eye away from the electronics, and I think he was right. One ancient painting of girl plus dog/goat plus one hundred-year-old Alaskan totem pole now make a transition between our aquaponics station and the room at large. Everything else, though, will remain bare (for now!).
