I'm a firm believer of The Maker. Not God, but the importance of tangible achievement.
There is no joy from being a keyboard warrior. All the typing and word documents and spreadsheets do not match up to something tangible, like the macarons you (try to) bake. They look less like Laduree's and more like (in J's words) fairy t-u-r-d macarons but the joy you get from seeing them rise in the oven is priceless.
-- Not the ones I baked but similar with the little tip at the top. Sigh.
Yeah.... I am a crappy baker.
