Just thought I would share one of my favorite old time skills. I learned to be a blacksmith from my father, and do it as often as I can. It's relaxing in the way any hard work is. You let your body find its rythm and by the end of the day your muscles are tired and sore but your mind is clear and alive. You quickly find a way to repurpose, reuse and recycle everything, as well as repair all manner of metal items, just as its been done for decades. I hope you enjoy.
