Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

    You mean this post has been sitting here with no comments all this time? WTF? I’m in the middle of crazy days, T, but I will find time to blogjack ya somehow. Trust me when I say that I know the empty feeling of layin’ it on the table only to be ignored. I’m here, just distracted. More later.

      My hammer slinging compadre. I hope your doing well out there on the road and hopefully making plenty of scratch.I too have been distracted of late but have enjoyed your blog from afar lurking in the shadows. Usually when (it) goes silent I believe a man is either not connecting with his audience or his audience has nothing to add. I also believe that as time passes and (it) takes form the audience changes as well evolving or devolving into a symbiotic rhythm much like the tides. I always wanted (it) to be an experimental site in which crazy ideas and foolish pursuits are followed until they reach the end of the road. Because, although what I do on a daily basis would surely hit a much bigger demographic I never wanted to bring the tool bag,blueprints,architects,engineers,designers,clients and problems home with me. I have seen first hand what bringing it home with you can do to a man. So here I stand with it all out on the table. I suppose more than anything we use (it) to leave a trail to anyone else out there searching for lost causes and foolishness. Anytime I have had great success in my life its been a result of hanging it out there. So tonight after I get home from building cabinets I will throw up a toast to hanging it out there more often and with more gusto. Silence be damned…..

      Time to throw on the belt.

Thursday night at the Jackson Haus.

#txbbq #bbqchicken #bbqcorn #scotchscotchscotch In the building business you spend your life in perpetual transition.

#artisanbuilders#customhomes#custombuilders#txhomes#weekendhome #builditbetter Progression on Casa de Jackson. Grateful . Cheers to all you fellow fathers out there on this, the eve of Father's Day. 
#dadlife#saturdaynight#fathersday2017 Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence. Henry David Thoreau A little Spork action. On the left a titanium spork by Light my fire. On the right a mesquite spork by OneTree.

#lightmyfire #lightmyfirespork #mesquite#onetreewoodwork #bushcraft#campgear #spork#farmersalmanac They auctioned off the lease for the rights to frack beneath and around Lake Somerville yesterday in New Mexico. The bureau of land management spokeswoman issued a statement saying they were still going through all the protest and would not issue the actual leases until they are either upheld or dismissed. This isn't just about preserving nature and wildlife (which should be enough) it's also about preserving clean water for the surrounding communities. Where the hell are our local representatives?
