My father was a master carpenter and sourced a plethora of brilliant ideas for DIY building projects directly from the magazine. My favorite was the swingset he built for my sister and I in California. While inspiration cannot be physically traced, I am certain that the streams of words I heard from my father’s voice while my head was pressed against his heart and the smell of his morning coffee filled the air, inexorably educated me about the environmental issues which faced our society and inevitably moved me on a profound level to take action as an adult, all the while becoming educated and informed by reading Mother Earth News.

Over the last year or so, a neighbor has stocked up eight or ten piles of firewood in his yard, probably fifteen or twenty cords. What’s he going to do with it all?
