As I write this letter, I sit in bed, resting after a long and frustrating day. After months of attempts at woodworking projects and nothing to show for it, I realized that I need to take a break from my newest hobby.
Honestly, it’s not that I’m bad at it. It’s not that it confuses me or eludes me as an artistic creator. The simple fact of the matter is I can’t do anything until I get the right tools, such as a table saw.
Until then, I can only hope that my other hobby, my writing, to be exact, is met with better success.
