SEMRA       – Alumni Spring 2016    – Question & Answer

 

Q:  Where are you from ?

A:  I spent this last Winter in Salt Lake City with a fun intentional community.  Montana doing trailwork before that.

 

Q:  What do you hope to learn/ primary focuses for the Bunkhouse Build ?

A:   Hoping to do things I missed out on last time. Even though we were doing two houses it seemed I was missing out on some tasks.  Im interested in this being a two story, larger situation, get something different from the last build. Most importantly to hone skills to build structures for a Queer intentional farm.

 

Q:   Hobbies/ Moab specific activities you enjoy?

A:  Swim club. Love getting involved in the Community, free film screenings at Star Hall. Also being involved in Moabs enviromental issues, some of which we’ve been facing for decades.

 

Q:  Favorite tool to use on site – embodied, power and/or hand tool(s) ?

A: I’d say the crew as a resource. The knowledge, sillyness and moral on the job site. Love a good trowel.

 

Q: Most interesting, inspired or favorite book you’ve read ?

A: ‘Orlando’ by Virginia Wolfe  –  Based off one of her real life lovers. Whose proganist changes genders and the story spans centuries so its like a time travel novel as well.

 

Q:  Most helpful and/or favorite quote of your life ? Or perhaps one you’d like to table/share ?

A:  “ Beauty must be defined as what we are or else the concept itself is our enemy” CRIMETHINC

 

Q:  What do you most enjoy doing on the build site ?

A: Besides interacting with the crew- problem solving with people and the general physical labor.  And getting better at fractions during framing.

 

Q:  Any shout outs to people, places, things ?

A:  Supportive farming community in Montana. My sweetie in Salt Lake and my community of lovely friends in Moab.
