Which then takes me to one of my favorite books of the last couple years, “Shop Class as Soulcraft” by a guy who grew up on a commune in California and went to all the good schools and landed himself a good paying think tank gig in DC.
Then he got tired of that shit and pitched it and started a business restoring old motorcycles somewhere around here.
The premise is exactly what it sounds like. Working with your hands and a clear focus is cool and spiritually rewarding.
See what you started, dammit?
