Very interesting video. Goes to show you what the power of one can do.

It would be nice to think that the same spirit will prevail 50 years from now...but I wonder.

It is a real shame that the old ways and methods are being lost. There are fewer and fewer people with the knowledge to thatch a roof, cobble a shoe, do blacksmithing...

When these skills are finally lost, we will have lost a part of ourselves and our history.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget.

How true that is.

The Japanese have a different mindset than we do when it comes to their old buildings.

Many of their more important shrines get rebuilt at the rate of 25% every five years. This is as much to preserve the shrines as it is to teach the younger generation how to do this vanishing work. Here we would just as likely dynamite the place (think Las Vegas) as we would maintain it.

Volunteers probably love doing this. I am reminded of Habitat for Humanity here in the West.
