Took a blog hiatus and now I'm back like NFL football.
During the past few weeks, I've been all over the place: Spain - Pittsburgh - Girard, Ohio, and along the way I've picked up a few things and have been inspired. I'll be posting pics of Spain soon enough, but in the meanwhile, one of my favorite things about taking a 2+ week vacation is thinking about what I want to learn and make. When I went with my friend Laura to Oaxaca, Mexico back in 2005, I remember coming back and reading up on honey bees, ants and quantum physics. This time around, here's what I want to learn:
teacup candle. Although this wasn't something I saw in Spain, I was inspired to get together with friends to make things. So get ready friends, we're going to make some candles.
Spanish Civil War and Christopher Columbus
For instance, Christopher Columbus died alone and broke, and George Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War. I hope to find a biography about Christopher Columbus that has more to do about the end of his life and less about when he sailed the ocean blue. For the Spanish Civil War, Brandon bought Homage to Catalonia, which I hope to read when he's finished with it. The Spanish Civil War is an interesting topic - much is still not talked about today.
