farming a boat...

There's a bird in the chimmney
And a stone in my bed
When the road's washed out
They pass the bottle around

Rolla, BC.

...Karl, Emily, and Dean.
They live on a cattle farm in Rolla, they are all good artists,
they are all wonderful warm and generous people.
Emily made this boat out of sticks and
cow placenta she collects during the winter births.
I spent a couple of months one winter up there...
l will never forget the richness and warmth they shared with me.
