"Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both."

Hi,
Yes, I have always admired People that go out to their shops to make a living.

Years ago my wife and I would take our vacations at John C. Campbell Folk School.

I would take Blacksmithing/Knifemaking classes and she would take whatever was offered at the time she was interested in.

Very nice Instructors and most working Artist.

Here is a link for anyone interested, and it does cut down the learning curve to get a week at a time instruction!
