Will Lyon lives in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin with his wife and two daughters. He works as a medical doctor and is currently a fellow in geriatric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. His interests include health, ethics, and building community, and his hobbies include woodworking, bird watching, and gardening.
The reason I lament the loss of home visits is because in the doctor’s journey to see the patient as a person (which is essential to the therapeutic relationship) the home is a rich environmental shortcut to the core of the person.
Beyond writing about craftmanship and antique furniture, M&T explores ideas about human work in a technological age, work in the context of community, and the relationship between craft and tradition. Regardless of your interest in the nuances of woodworking, many Porchers would find reading M&T to be worthwhile.
