pleaseshowmehowtolive asked: Where did you learn to make the things you do? Very interesting Tumblr. Thanks
80% self taught 20%knowledge learned through classes and working with other smiths.
Over the years my life has simplified more and more and looking forward I can see it continuing on this path. Ive learned to let go of things I don’t need and polluting people along the way. Ive grown a great bit in the past few years and I still am growing thats for sure. Essentially all the time I spend in this life is either in the forge and in the forest, and it means a lot to be able to actively pursue my dreams even though it’s slow achieving them. I’ll tell you I could not do it without the love and support of my girl, whose beyond anything I had ever hoped for in this life. For some people when they think of wealth, they think of money, but for me I see things continuing this way, but perhaps with a modest home to share with the family I dream of having and a nice plot of land where I could kick back and forget about the busy busy world. Ill never be a rich man chasing this blacksmith dream, but ill get by, ill make sure of it!
