. . . It never ends folks. Once you are hooked on making
jewelry, the addiction never goes away. . .
I'm not so much hooked on making jewelry as I am on paying my bills.
If I had adequate financial resources such that I didn't have to make
jewelry for a living, I'm sure I would still make it, when I wasn't
puttering around tending the orchard or the currents and gooseberrys.
Or maybe firing up the old coal forge and the power hammer to bash
around on hot iron. Just not sure what the heck my stuff would look
like if I didn't have to worry about somebody wanting to pay for it.
One thing I miss, since moving back into town. I miss watching the
chickens picking around in the yard. My advice? Never retire before
you can actually stay retired. Leisure is a tough habit to break.
