A quiet mind while working with my eyes to my hands has resulted in small pieces of progress, but little to write of. Recent work has improved my proficiency with tools and made problem-solving within a workshop more feasible. Mortises (square holes) in the gunwales have all been cut and the ends are almost totally shaped. Photographs accompanied with labels to clarify language and terms will soon follow when the kayak takes on a more interesting, kayak-like form.
I do consider myself blessed to have such an activity that grants such mental harmony. How do you provide your mind relief and be inwardly quiet? If nothing, make time, and seek what your mind prefers. Not an escape, just an intermission.
