Happy Saturday, Roadies! Grab your cuppa and enjoy these blog posts I liked most this week.

This post from Eric Kim says it’s about photography, but it’s really about anything you do: do it for its own intrinsic value in your life. Read Photography for Photography’s Sake

My buddy Kurt Garner lives in an 1850s house on some land in rural Marshall County, Indiana. He’s planting tamaracks, a tree once native to the area but which have been gone for longer than anyone can remember. Read The Tamarack Experiment

I always enjoy Lignum Draco‘s street photography. This time, he’s captured a bunch of people wearing sunglasses, in crisp, contrasty black and white. Read The future’s so bright…

    Hats off to your buddy Kurt! Tell him someone in Minnesota is inspired by him, and grateful that he’s doing something so meaningful to reverse the careless deeds of his fellow humans. Go little saplings, go! :)

      Kurt’s reach is extending! He’ll be delighted.

    Oooh, thanks for that tamarack post! I associate those with my home in Montana, and I’m fascinated to know they might belong here as well.

      Barely — just a couple counties in from the north!

    Tamaracks are amazing trees and there are a fair number of them here in Maine. They are hardy to 85 degrees below zero! Head north (way north!) and they are the last trees you see before there aren’t any trees.

      Wow, -85! That’s one tough tree.
