One thought on “Passion Is…

  1. I love this post, it is so true it is like those thoughts were pulled from my head, great job. My friends and family are always saying my head is in the “wood”. I am going to send it to my family so they can understand my passion for woodworking. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone.

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
