eye


For some reason I do not allow myself to 'make' things.
Could it be I do not see them as economic. 
It takes ages to make something.
Take this eye, it cost next to nothing, just a rubber ring and some scrap aluminium. But it took hours, to cut the parts just right and assemble them securely and invisibly.
Now it hangs on the wall in our shower room and sees all.
Items like 'eye' are hard to sell for real money. 
So what.
To make a thing and to make it well is a joy in itself.
It is enough.
