This is just to say

I have used
the tablesaw
sitting idle
since November

not without
nervousness
but I was
very careful

and there is
nothing like the
smell of sawdust
to banish fear.

Wonder bar!!
I would say to hold that little pearl of fear in the back of your brain, lest you should forget..but I don't think that will be necessary... so here's to future woodworking projects!

Good for you, but of course Rita is right that a tiny bit of fear is no bad thing. I also remember that sharp smell of sawdust always on our basement floor when I was a kid. It's wonderful.
