Splintering Cane: Feminine Reactions

IMG_5988

I told my wife that the friend I'm going to build bamboo rods with had bought a bamboo fly rod.
- Why he wants to build a bamboo rod if he already bought one? She asked.
Why do the birds sing? Why the green is green? What keeps a rock from crumbling into dust?

The friend told he was casting his split-cane in the yard. A lady, a neighbor, walks past with a dog and smiles.
It is January, there is snow on the ground, pretty cold, about a hundred meters to the nearest lake shore, frozen lake shore, a guy is casting a fly rod as old as she. What's there to smile about?

So, you're going to explore the bamboo world huh?
Watch out because the bamboo virus is probably intense and stay for life! :)

The old lady's smiling because she just finished reading The River Why.

Bamboo is such a nice material, because it has a wide number of different uses. You can build furniture, design clothes, prepare tea, make instruments and so many other things. I'm glad I just learned a new one.

Well a bamboo roof will be there forever i guess, the bamboo is very flexible and resistant, even in times like this many constructions in china still use bamboo because is much better that concrete and always grows stronger.
