Here goes my attempt to do a blog! I thought this would be a good place to journal the construction of my studio addition. I will try to post pictures of the construction progress. Those of you who are interested can log in and follow the progress day by day with me.
Sunday, June 4 was my ceremonial ground breaking. What a coincidence that June 4th this year was Pentecost, a time of beginning in the early church with the arrival of the Holy Spirit. How appropriate!
As I broke ground I read a quote from Kahlil Gibran that a dear friend sent me. I include it here.
"When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music. To love life through labor is to be intimate with life's inmost secret. All work is empty save when there is love, for work is love made visible."
June 5th brought the arrival of the work crew. They arrived bright and early, I might add! The sun was shining and the first digs were made. This is really going to happen or we are going to have a really big hole in our yard with mounds of dirt around it! Wouldn't the neighbors love that!
Today, June 6, the backhoe is still digging the foundation hole. The piles of dirt get larger!
