Today, I had cause to consider anew the need for a hand made, back to basics, from scratch, chain.
|bit more patience and determination|
Link the chain.
And that my friends, is how it is done.
I look down at my hands at the end of the day and see the dirt and the impression the shaft of my manual drill has made on my finger tips. I feel keenly the determination of two generations of my family to rise above the condition I now see my hands in.
It lays on me heavily and propels me to imagine a bigger future. With patience, persistence and many more days of dirty fingertips - I'll get there.
