What a lovely day!

Art sewing a portfolio at Morningside.

I spent the day at Morningside Nature Center demonstrating leatherwork for Living History.  It is really hard to think of anything more satisfying.  The weather was perfect, the farm was quiet, and I met and talked with several interesting people.  I had hours of uninterrupted time to think while I was braiding and hand stitching.  No cell phone.  No email.  No blog or Facebook.  No radio or NPR news updates.  Just the hammer of Al, the blacksmith, Penny the cow mooing, birds singing, and sounds of kids laughing and playing.  Dinner was pork chops, black eyed peas, fresh biscuits, and sugar cookies, all cooked on a wood cook stove by my lovely wife and her helper in the cabin.

It really doesn’t get any better!

  1. Your day at Morningside sounds idyllic indeed. It is at times like that I understand those, all too well who abandon Wall Street or other similar high intensity jobs and turn to other pursuits which are every bit if not more rewarding with none of the hassle or stress.
