As etsy is a recommendation, recently "houseoftheredmug " opened March 17, 2017 and the Shop Team "ReuseaBle" had 6 team members, and now 9 members. A team member sent me her photograph of her light fixture craft from transformed reuseable plastic milk jugs which are astonishing. Back in Canada, I often walked down the lane behind the Return Depot to view the graffiti and enjoy the used and abandoned train tracks. During my last spring in Canada 2016, I gathered up many empty milk jugs dumped along the lane to bring with me to claim along with the empties I was returning that day. The familiar Return Depot staff member said no deposit is payable but that I could leave the empty plastic milk jugs for recycling. Disappointed I agreed but felt that there is some value somewhere to the jugs. The empty milk jugs are craft supplies with potential sales value to the craftsman.  Maulo

Experiments in Story
Life is a series of defining moments, with a lot of other boring stuff in between, mixed up in an order that doesn't seem to make much sense. A story is just the series of defining moments.
It took me a series of unusual events combined with chronic illness over a period of 17 months to realize how much I like stories. I have consumed my fair share of stories in books and television, and I have collected my fair share of stories in life. Here is a picture of me in a hospital bed in Kenya after vomiting blood, but before having to work on a farm to get a ride to the airport to escape.

There were times over these past 17 months when watching television was the most active thing I could do. I couldn't walk all the way across the room without having to stop and take a break

Tony is an exce
