So, like a Cuban máquina on route to market, over the endless spring of 2015 I have lurched back and forth across a greening Stockholm. Through that endeavour my brothers and sisters I have come to rest in a well equipped, modestly proportioned, workshop. Three weeks lie in wait, during which time I will immerse myself in the pursuit of perfection.

As a result, by neither design nor good management but for the people, the opportunity to imagine, sculpt and shape three pieces of mighty alder presents. There would of course be no revolution, nor any art, if not for change and so there will be alterations and iterations driven by the voices of the many. You however - my finest and most beloved of readers - will have to wait for details of this design, for:

Che Guevara

"The road is long and full of difficulties. At times we wander from the path and must turn back; at other times we go too fast and separate ourselves from the mass; on occasions we go too slow and feel the hot breath of those treading on our heals. In our zeal as revolutionists we try to move ahead as fast as possible, clearing the way, but knowing we must draw our sustenance from the mass, and that it can advance more rapidly only if we inspire it by our example." (Man and Socialism in Cuba (1965) - Che Guevara)

Amen.
