You need to read less and think more!

This blog is about getting stoked and getting worthwhile things done. There is a sea of useless information bombarding you, and this is a desert island where you beach your boat and build a hut. There are also some clever little construction tricks to be presented.

What does element7 mean?

"Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right thoughts. Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.” 
 Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values


The shortest answer to "what is element7" is that it refers to the spiritual perfection we seek to inject into our work.  Last month I indulged a bit in explaining my love of Christ and Christian theology, and from here out we endeavor to give more/shorter/more enigmatic examples of the intersection of inspiration and manual labor.  Hopefully it will be more fun to read and more inspiring.  


Next week will feature a short story on simple, inspired geometric patterns that seem to work themselves out as (saw cut) patterns on floors curiously well.
