Working on these projects is more than just following the drawing and hitting deadlines. I get in these modes of recalling events, people, and for some reason three big moments where I was at a fork in the road. I could choose to go one way or another and the results of those choices. How intense those moments to make a decision and follow through with it were. Our situations go up and down and as I work on this bell stand I'm happy where things are. Yeah some things could be better, but I know things could be much worse if I had "let" certain people and events engulf me in their struggle. By the end of the project there is some accomplishment about these little meditations of the path we are on. Maybe it's working with our hands…or maybe my #coffee is a little strong… "Change before you have to." #JackWelch #dirtysmith #blacksmith #blacksmithing #forge
