it started with traveling. going to a place we knew not much about. spending time amongst the people and their hills. walking the streets, seeing how they sip their drink. how they eat their bread. listening to their dance. there in the land in the north was where this influence began. inspired by the shapes, arts, and designs our eyes saw, we hold the same desire to make, and to imagine what can be made and pleasantly seen. we like shapes, words compiled, places we can go to, water, moving water, sunlight, places that make shade, music and movement, things unclear, things toward clear, and cooking in the wilderness with friends.
