This Week's Nightmare

Because of all the delays in moving, I've had to reschedule TWO customer visits. This week I was supposed to be in El Paso/Juarez but flaked out at the last minute. There's just too much to do. Next week I was supposed to be in Michigan but that's not going to happen either. Too much to do.

At one point my life revolved around work. When commitments interfered, work always came first. Over the past few years that has changed and over this last year it's REALLY changed. Now it's taking more and more to get me out of the house and into the corporate world to do work.

Part of this is clearly the mental journey I've been on towards a life of simplicity and humble Christian living. Another part is that I don't need the money so much. As my needs have grown simpler I have become more unwilling to put up with the nonsense.

I think it will not be too long before I turn my back on it all and walk away. A humble knifemaker and beekeeper will be all that I am. The work of my hands, as God intended for a man.
