Portrait of an Artisan

I had an old interview here from a local paper, but my friend Dana's interview is better, and shorter.



Dana: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

Jueri: A pre-tree, aka a nut.

Dana: What do you like better: people or trees?

Jueri: A tree has never lied to me.

Dana: Some trees are crooked. Do you think it's a conspiracy?

Jueri: All trees are crooked. When everybody is in on it, it's not a conspiracy.

Dana: Do you prefer morningwood or hardwood?

Jueri: Both have their place.
