Why I find so much meaning in Woodworking

This last couple of weeks at work have made me doubt myself as few things have in recent memory.  I’ve been working in my field for 30 years now and I think I know a few things.  But sometimes a situation arises that make you doubt yourself .. deeply.  This has been one of them.

Woodworking will be one of the things that will help remove those lingering doubts.  The video below, perhaps because of where things are for me, seemed to put into words best why making things for my family and others brings great satisfaction.  Enjoy.

    Marilyn, thanks for that. Isn’t it odd how, when shadows loom, some tiny bit of inspiration seems to pop up? Seems to me, the darker the shadows, the more meaningful the whisper of inspiration. I recently lost someone very dear to me, whom I hadn’t seen in fifteen years when he was mentoring me in the art of fine writing. In putting away his many letters, I came across a cartoon he’d sent once, with a little guy standing at the pearly gates with St. Peter saying, “You can come in if you can tell me a word that rhymes with Orange.” I’m pretty sure my friend is still standing there. Whatever is bugging you, I hope that little film clip helped.
