The type of canoe I write about in the journal sections of this piece is a Cheemaun, which is a small, beautiful canoe. I've been building and repairing canoes for many years, but the Cheemaun is something special. There is something in the curve and shape of each one I make that speaks to perfection. This beauty and the years I have spent building made me want to write about the experience. I wanted to combine my love of writing and building, two forms of creation. I'm very glad I had the opportunity to do that in this project.
