Make something with your hands every day, some wisdom from Mahatma Gandhi. It has been my goal for a long time now to follow this creed and it makes me happy nearly every day; even if it is something small, it is a small victory.
“Its a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Lest we forget what makes us human.

Have you seen, or read, the book, “Cræft: An Inquiry into the Origins and True Meaning of Traditional Crafts” by Alexander Langlands (Norton, 2018)? I just received a copy from th elibrary and it is a marvelous book.
No, but I just looked it up and plan to get my hands on a copy. It sounds great. Thank for sharing the knowledge!
