There is no other hobby that one can get so caught up in, that the entire world, and any worries fade away, and one thinks of nothing other than what they’re doing at that moment, every moment that machine is in their hand. It frees the mind, and it’s a high like no other, which calms you to your soul.
I’ve always been a free, independent spirit, with a love of the outdoors and nature. Growing up I preferred to be out wandering in the woods all day, exploring and building forts. I had a great imagination, and in my mind actually lived in these forts and off the land, that is, until I heard the bell ringing in the distance indicating it was time to come home for dinner.
