Still Down & Out…

What a revolt in’ development, as Jimmy Durante used to say — referring to my lamed-out state of health. ) I’m still pretty flat-out wasted and have decided to go home Wednesday rather than head to Kauai as planned. Sigh. One slight consolation is that it’s been stormy and chilly here this week, so I wouldn’t have been able to surf even if healthy…a couple of observations about Oahu: (1) There are really a lot of natives (non-Europeans) here. Unlike where I live and the natives (Miwok, Pomo, Ohlone) have been completely obliterated…(2) There is really a lot of surf (which I saw when I first got here); it’s everywhere — shore break, point break, cloud break…I’m gonna come back when I’m firing on all cylinders…my friend Tom has been a godsend, letting me stay at his place and recover. Been mostly sleeping for 5 days. OK, enough whining…

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.
