Time In The Shop Makes Me Happy!

happy danceI started the day gluing up the back of a dulcimer with hide glue. Birds sing outside. The fragrance of walnut shavings is in the air. The glue pot occasionally makes a soft, rolling sound as the thermostat trips to keep the water at the proper temperature.

I find a unique happiness in these moments.

    Happiness can not really be purchased, I’m so happy you have found yours.

    The dancing video makes me smile.
