I Have A Dream
I have this dream of building a yurt. It is more of a fantasy, because dreams can come true. Fantasies are something you recognize will never happen.
It all started with a National Geographic article about wool. The photos of making felt in Mongolia were fascinating. The people took a log, and a hide, the wool was fluffed and put onto the hide. Then the hide was rolled around the log, and wet. The log would be dragged around by horses until it was a large piece of felt. The idea of using wool to make a living space appeals to me. I have wool that is truly suited to such an endeavor, and little else.
I also loved the photo of a Turkish Shepard in his felted cloak.
The article showed all types of wool, and the animals they come from. Angora, from rabbits, camel, llama, alpaca, sheep, yak, mohair (angora goat) , from the respective animals.
I have been in a yurt or ger since then, and the space is very peaceful. I think it has something to do with a round space . My Dad always said "then the devil can't corner ya."
