Like most folks I’m finding my way through this new landscape. I’m lucky to have had work through the summer and fall. A custom kitchen a Fox canoe to finish and a few other custom furniture and cabinet projects for clients. I’m also lucky to work at home and mostly alone. I can still build each day and my suppliers are still able to get materials to me. And, I can still ship my boat kits! Building a boat is a great way to fill your day and once we are back out in the world paddling is even better then building!
There have been some challenges of course, All 12 weeks of summer classes were canceled. As they should have been. Most have been rescheduled for 2021.
I missed teaching this summer. Of course the loss of income was a bitter blow but the bigger loss was the experiences missed. The places, the traveling and camping and the people I did not cross paths with. The loss of these things has left a big hole in the the year So, I’m digging deep as we all are too find what’s best and bright and hopeful. I’m finding new ways to connect with my community and I’m going to take the lessons learned forward into the world we discover on the other side of this.
