Walk your own path.
Write your own story.
Carve your own spoon.
I had my first (but hopefully not last) spoon-carving lesson with my father-in-law over the weekend. It was difficult, but such a fun and productive way to spend a morning! My favorite part was getting into a rhythm with the chisel and watching the spoon bowl and curves of the handle emerge from the birch wood.
I am already gathering ideas for my next carving session.
