We have been lucky that this summer has been mild to date, mild enough that it gives you pause of days to come, but here I sit with a door open to my office listening to the morning birds calling.
I'll take these mornings.
Yesterday I posted thoughts about our fire on a July night in 2008 on our FB page.
Why now I ask myself?
I think as a reminder of how folks can rebuild after a disaster in their lives.
Life moves on even when you feel as if you are stuck in mud.
I sent the check in 3 weeks before this happened.
I know how hard it is to look at these pictures. I know how hard it was to live through this. What made it better, or easier was the insurance check that allowed us to rebuild, and make it better.
We could hire someone to build it the second time rather than build it ourselves.
It has changed some of how we work and why.
I think things like this do change a person.
In the past 9 years there have been many changes, some good, some not so good.
Mark and I? We keep on moving along, ebb and flow, he makes pots and now I make tiles.
Changes come slow and some times changes are like a freight train rolling past.
Grab the caboose, you just never know where it will take you.
