I have been working on this project for close to six weeks now. For that time, I have limited my activities as much as possible to this work, helping family and caring for my health. So I get up, do some yoga or jogging, and get after it. I average about 4-6 hours a day in the shop. I have logged over 80 hours so far and I am pretty sure about 30 of those hours have been fixing mistakes along the way. But since I am on no schedule, each mistake takes on the sense of adventure that asks the question “now how am I gonna fix this?” That sends me on a side trail to investigate new techniques and gives me a chance to be humble in my work. I have heard them called “happy mistakes” and I am starting to really get the sense of the meaning of that.
So I am closing in on the end, and as has happened the last two weeks in a row I am thinking I will finish this project next week. We will see what’s in store. It is my sincere hope that each and every one of you are on your own adventure this week, keeping after the important things in your life. That you take your mistakes into the adventure as part of the journey and you enjoy the process of life. Peace and love to all.
