    bought my first one today. been too many years since i've done

    any sketching/drawing.

    what haven't you done in so long, and want/need to get back to doing

    to keep you sane?

    I'm going to. I'll do it for me with no intention of getting published, at least to start anyway.

    I can't wait to see some of your sketchings

    Oh bother...

    woodworking. and not in a dirty way.

    that should change soon though. after the move, i'm gonna have a lot of room in the basement to set up a little workshop area. i haven't had a working space for that stuff for like 15 years, but i still have a lot of the hand tools and i think i retained the knowledge.

    ooh. i hope you do. maybe you'll share something with me.

    oh..i would love to see what you make. woodworking is such a lost art.

    (would it be art? or craft?~i guess on what you do yeah?)

    I will if I focus and write

    I'll have to use pen and paper, it's faster than typing, for me anyway

    Oh bother...

    i'd call it a craft maybe. what i do is far from art (imo). also, i don't really have many projects of which there are pictures, because most of what i've done was before digital cameras / cameraphones. the only things i've made in the last few years are functional items, like a cellphone charging kiosk and a bunch of beer flight paddles for the bar. i have a couple projects that i'm gathering materials for now, stuff i plan on tackling later this year in the new house.

    that's the thing.

    getting back in to it. the focusing.

    but...pen to paper ...how very...'old school'

    in a composition book?

    what's holding you back?

    also, the new house has been amazingly well-cared for, since it was built 99 years ago. almost all of the original woodworking, including doors, trim, staircases, floors, etc etc. a couple pieces here and there are broken / missing or are poor copies of the original though, and i plan on restoring those things back to original quality over time. that will be a challenge, but should be pretty rewarding.


  • 0

    oh yes. that will be nice. i hope you can do this. how very satisfying restoring something.

    and knowing that you can do a better job makes you want to do it.

    see you have motivation. that's a good thing.

    i hope i can do better. matching stain colors and finishes from 50+ years ago will be a trick, and setting new glass next to old panes tends to be a bit obvious. but it'll be fun to try.

    Yup, I got the instruments, but it's just an issue of time. Get home at 6:30-7:00pm, take care of my baby girl till 8:30, cook some dinner for the fam, all that kinda takes time. Before you know it, it's midnight.

    POOP

    i know this all too well.

    i hope you can somehow, someway, find the time.

    and judging from you're day..you probably NEED this sort of break.

    I use to play the trombone a long time ago. I wonder if I still know how.
