I think 50% or more of my woodworking and model ship building library is
this way, but it sure is fun to dream.
I figure you've gotta have dreams, and they seem to be in about 3
FIRST, is things you know for a fact you can do, but just haven't gotten
SECOND, is things you're pretty sure you can do, but you may not have a
chance to try - lack of money, time, space, whatever. Or you try, and
screw it up; but, In that case you just say, "Damn, thought I could do
it. Ah well.", and move on.
And, THIRD, is things you know you'll never be able to do, period, but
you still dream about them.
A goodly portion of mine are SECOND category now, mostly because of
a lack of space and money, and a non-lack of bad joints. But, still
have a few of THIRD category dreams left.
What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
