her majesty's raft

4 years after a road trip that crossed the Mississippi in the misty summer morning, and a careless conversation "we should build a raft and float this river..." "...yes".

1 year after gathering designs, materials, and fantasies, I arrived at a small piece of land on the St. Croix river  with collaborator Hannah B. Harris, and we began to building.

3 months later she was born: Her Majesty's Raft C. Bernadette Able, who carried us halfway down the Mississippi river, and who for six months was our home.
