lucky to have hands...

Those of us who have hands take them for granted. Some folks have sufficient creative spirit despite lack of hands to make examples of their own lives to inspire the rest of us. There is an element within the human spirit that aspires to nobility, but our failure to understand the values inherent in craftsmanship can lead us to seek our own nobility in meaningless places... Having rather than making, appearances rather than joyful service to others. This video is informative.

Yesterday I ordered SawStop table saws for Clear Spring School, the Eureka Springs School of the Arts, and for my own wood shop. I am shipping an order today and preparing for the Thea Art Show in Little Rock on Saturday. Thea Foundation is an organization founded by the family of an artist from North Little Rock, Thea Kay Leopoulos, who died at the too young age of 17. The foundation was created in 2001 to promote the arts in schools, and the art show on Saturday will support its efforts.

Do something to celebrate your hands today.

Make, fix and create...
