10 Hours Later


Ten hours of carving, and it looks like I have about 10 hours more to go.

Appropriately enough, tonight in my email inbox I got the latest McClain's newsletter featuring an interview with Northampton's famous engraver, Barry Moser. Asked why he loves engraving, given that he himself describes it as "excruciatingly frustrating" and "relentlessly unforgiving," Moser replied, "I have a tenacious personality. If something pushes hard against me, I want to push all that much harder against it." I can relate to that!
