George Smithwick: “We sit ‘ere….and enjoy life.”

This is George Smithwick. He’s a ‘cooper’. Works with his hands.

I can’t get past his comment, “we sit ‘ere………..and enjoy life.”

“I know the brain tells the hands what to do, but I think it’s the other way around…my hands tell my brain what to do. Without my hands I’d be lost.”

This is craftsmanship and what men were made for. Who do you know can last—much less enjoy life—in a cubicle for 30 years straight?
