I’ve been in a complex head space this year, brain tied in knots mulling over the madness of humanity mixed with the hope of human possibility.
I’ve been asking myself, is it worth the incremental gains, to keep doing this CraftNight thing, fighting the collective malaise of our time and chipping away at big-city cynicism and self-centeredness every goddamn week one googly eye, one puffball, one drop of glue at a time?
The answer is yes.
Because sitting inside a Sisyphean mindset of hopelessness and resignation just isn’t going to do a single cotton-pickin’ thing. And no, it’s not a cakewalk, but no one said that hope is free, and no one said we get to eat rose petals, fried pickles, and honey all day long.
In the words of Albert Camus, “Life in the face of pain is the ultimate revolt.”
Therefore, please come to CraftNight and share with us but a moment of your revolt, your freedom, your passion.
See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
