Yesterday I split wood for the very first time in my life! And I was incredibly surprised by the enormous gratification of the experience.
I was up at Justin’s family’s home for Easter brunch and his dad had a huge pile of wood in the yard. Justin asked if I wanted to try splitting wood. I felt a little squeamish. Not having ever held an axe, I was a bit embarrassed to be a novice wood splitter in front of his family… It was silly, I know; but the vulnerability kicked up my shyness.
