I love the very idea of a hammock. In terms of sleep technology, it's fairly primitive. But in terms of design, it's surprisingly sophisticated. All of those ropes, coiled and knotted together in such an intricate pattern...it's almost a definition of the term 'craft.' A well-made hammock slung in a graceful arc between two trees is a joy to behold.
A good book, something cool to drink, and a hammock in the shade by the brook. The three pillars of contentment.
