A Little Off the Top

BY Christian Ford

You never know what you’re going to find.  A humble demonstration at a hot and dusty harvest festival turned out to be something more;  a reminder of what expertise looks like in the unhurried certainty of its actions, a reminder that the pre-computer world was once rich with people who practiced skills that needed both mind and body and above all, a reminder  that physical labor can be an art, imparting dignity to all involved.
