Baby Maceo comes to visit

My good friend from Baja, Chilon, told me that Mexican slang for the grandpa of a boy, is “Abuelito de Batman.” Well, all right!

Here’s me a few hours ago with Batman. I’m awed by babies. The perfect little hands with grasping fingers, the smooth skin, the smiles, and the deep look into your eyes that infants practice before they learn not too. I love the feeling of thus little guy on my shoulder. I took him out to watch the chickens. I watched his eyes as he scanned the scene. Seeing things for the first time. He’s 4 months old.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
