What we believe about the craft determines what we think is possible with it. If all you want are shortcuts and the cheapest solution for everything, that’s the hobby you’ll have. If you see it as a creative pursuit worthy of your best efforts, then that too is the hobby you’ll have. What you bring to the craft is what you will receive back from it multiplied many times over. The more I think about this, the greater disconnect I feel with generic hobby practices. I believe we are so focused on the mechanics of what we do that we seldom question why we do them. I hope you use this book as a starting point rather than a road map. I’m only offering the questions, how you answer them is up to you.
