This is hard to say out loud. Hard to know quite how to say at all really. (I’ve had this post whirling around in my head for days.) But more and more this blog feels like the most creative work I’ve done. Maybe ever. Which is strange because working as a designer you’d think I’d be doing all sorts of creative things all the time. And I do. But not like this.
I’ve never been much good at making things with my hands. Always more of a planner, worse luck. But writing the blog I get the smallest hint some days of how a craftsman must feel when he puts his heart and soul into his work. When he does what he does because he has to. Because to not do it would mean keeping a huge, important part of himself just to himself. The best part.
