By Hand – Why Making Things is Good for Body, Mind, and Spirit
About 80,000 words
You get to New Camaldoli Hermitage near Big Sur, California, by turning off Highway 1 onto a gravel road, which doubles back on itself again and again as it climbs the Coast Range.
Most giants live in legends, but this one lives next door. Kids see him as a freak. Women see him as a threat – “ his body is too big, his mind too small, his ways too rough.”
Tell the Bees
Tell the Bees is a story about starting out, starting over, and finishing up, a story of love and loss which connects the generations, living and dead.
