You're a good writer.. Very profound, I've never given a thought to that side of maille. But indeed is mailling very relaxing and getting a piece done gives you a great feeling of success.

I think you could compare chainmaille with martial arts.. I've only been mailling for 4 months or so and had Tae Kwon Do by my side for 6 years, but there is something same about the feeling when making maille practising those already quite familiar moves. (And even though there is the violent aspect in martial arts, I've at least become sooo much less agressive during these years)

Hmh.. got a little off topic but still.. Very Happy Great article.

It looks like a good story. Do you want proofreading done? I'm pretty good at that....I can see a few minor grammatical errors already (but the material itself is very good)

Bravo Bative!! You've taken the basic philosophy of mail that I've always believed in (as stated in my signature quote) and expanded it to monumental proportions.

I stand in awe of your story, your insight and your courage to persever.

Again, Bravo!!

Yea, I noticed a few errors in it too Very Happy

That was not too bad though. It was, like you said, a bit sappy for me, but still...
And yes, maille has done the same thing for me, except I never went to any psychologists, etc, and I'm not a bloody pot head Razz

Good job!

Cod, I guess you've been gone longer than I thought, I've given up the green, and all the bad press that goes along with it.
not to mention smoking, drinking, and anything else debilitating to the body.
and I've begun to practice Ahimsa, which is tough, but hey, i'll live Smile
I used to laugh when people said 'i dont need drugs, im high on life' now a days, i understand them completely.

Maille can help you out alot, as im sure you know. It can get your mind off the bad things that just seem to keep coming and getting worse.

That's nice to hear Very Happy
But isn't Ahisma a religion? From your quote, I get the impression that you don't really like religion... ???

Ahimsa is a style of life, based off some old religious practices (mostly hindi). However it's not considered a religion. Religion is all how you think of things anyway.. Smile
Ahimsa is basically, not hurting anything, by word, by act, or by thought. So no hurting/killing anything,thinking bad thoughts, or thinking of hurting/killing anything in anyway, or saying bad things about anything, to anything, or about anything.
Its tough, but I'm loving it!!!!!
