Woodworking like any trade or hobby has quality. It has a different quality to you and me.
When I first started woodworking it was difficult, frustrating, enjoyable and fun. That was dynamic quality at play. Waves of inspiration are the razor edge of the blade of dynamic quality. The blade cuts after the wave hits you. This is the first experience of quality.
When this quality sticks, it becomes less frustrating, difficult, enjoyable and fun... well I still enjoy woodworking and I think it is fun but not in the estatic way woodworking made me feel when I started. This is woodworking transferring from being dynamic quality to a static quality.
Remember when you learned to drive. You probably went through this same thing. Driving was frightening, frustrating and fun. Now it is mundane since you have been doing it for years and years.
A life in a perpetual state of dynamic quality is chaotic. Imagine a full-time globe trotter with no fixed address. I am sure it is fun for a while but I doubt anyone wants globe-trotting for ever.
A life in a perpetual state of static quality is mundane. Imagine living in a cookie cutter subdivision working at the same job and doing the same tasks only to come home to watch the same TV show, eat the same dinner and go to bed.
I think the pursuit of happiness is in finding the balance of dynamic quality events amidst a life of static quality.
This is why waves of inspiration, those cutting edges of the blade of dynamic quality are so important to me.
But equally important is the static quality left behind by the wave.
