Manual skills have stopped being passed down from father to son. And in our digital age, much of what we do for both work and pleasure is often conducted in an intangible realm with intangible results.
I can relate to this. There are some day when i come home and am asked what did i do today, that i can’t really tell. I talked to a lot of people, i had a lot of meetings… but what do i do? what would it feel like to make pizzas and say that today i made 50 pizzas. that remindes me that i have not eaten yet.
