    Hey, Richard. Was just looking round your web page…Found this…Wanted to say I’m glad you were able to make such a strong, impressive bow. I remember you mentioned how frustrating it was to get it just right.Congrats, my friend.It’s beautiful.

    • thanks Debbie!
      i sure enjoy it and try a little target practice every evening after caring for the garden.
      its amazing how my mind can determine my shooting.
      When feeling incompetent or even too confident …. i shoot poorly.
      when i feel indifferent to either failure or success but simply focus on the target (without too much aiming) things improve vastly….
      if this is not a lesson for me…then maybe i have ceased learning ?

    Oh, yes. That’s a lesson for life, Isn’t it? Aim straight and true, whatever the outcome.
