Glass half-full after all
I arrived at my workshop today to find that thieves had broken into it the hard way. They smashed a toughened glass window, removed the frame, then bent four 3/4 inch steel bars to 90 degrees rather than simply cutting off the door lock to the right side of this photo.
They took all of my power tools, but - and this is a big but - did not touch the pair of bronze sculptures in the same room which were waiting for me to take them away this morning to reinstall at the client's house.
This confirmed two things at once for me.
One was that a small number of nasty cunts make life so difficult for ordinary people who are just trying to get on with their lives without harming others, and the other was that my glass is, indeed, half-full after all.
Yes, it is going to cost me a lot of money that I do not have to repair the workshop and replace the tools so I can carry on making an honest living, but if they had stolen the bronzes it would probably have finished me off for good by bankrupting me.
