Solitude...



I don't show my face a lot on this blog. There's no need. I don't want what I do to revolve around my "image." But my wife came over to the shop with me last week to shoot a few shots of the shop and what I do. Being totally modest, she even makes me look somewhat toleable...





I generally work alone...and love it. I work at my own pace. I work when I want to. I listen to the music I want to listen to, as loud or as quiet as I want to. I don't blame anybody for the mistakes I make, but thank everyone that lends me a hand when a job is complete and turns out better than planned. I start and end my day as I like - as short or as long as I want. I give myself no limitations as to what I can achieve, but never scorn myself about shortcomings or misgivings - they're simply lessons to be learned. The paycheck isn't always the greatest, but there's no monetary value that can be placed on this kind of freedom...True. Solitary. Freedom...



Looking at these pictures makes me realize a happiness that would in most circumstances be unattainable in any other environment. Many thanks go to my wife for her unending support, encouragement and love. And many thanks to my dear friend Bob Wagaman whose level of generosity is seldom seen by most individuals these days. Funny how solitude can bring one closer to the ones he or she loves.

"Freedom is..."
