    looking for a cure?

    well i red that darren had a cold in the summer time and few others had some ailments goingon this summer. well i thought i was doing ok but when tom came over i realized i had caught a very bad disease. i have been very busy with outside work and only been in the shop to rip some lumber for window jambs some time back. the shop looks cluttered and out of place items everywhere and the smell of stale air as well.. but the real symptom showed up when tom asked about a router he heard i had and i couldnt find it!!!! we both looked for some time and this was before we had a cold drink.. i have got this disease so bad that i didnt even get real excited over the loss of it?? but later with toms persistence we did find it.. but the shop is still setting idle and the truck keeps getting more miles and the tool boxes are keeping them in some order for the next job.. maybe come winter things will slow down and i can re introduce myself to the shop.. havnt even bought a fishun licence yet!

    Oh the problems of perpetually popping up priorities.

    Everytime I think I can get a little shop time in, something else pops up to take priority over what I really want to do.

    Sounds familiar to me, I have not made any wooddust for about 4 months, when Mohammad came over I had been idle for about 2 months. Shop is tidy but my soul is empty and tired. I have to decide what to do when we go to our in-laws so I don't die of boredom.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...

    There is no cure as far as I know, every year seems to take longer to do less.

    Maybe Ted's right, time to get that fishing license, at least then you know you're wasting time
