We finished our last piece of demolition for the first floor on Friday! While this was definitely a big step, there are so many more to go!
And now, with so much forward momentum behind us, we’re surprisingly at a standstill. This entire project is SUCH a lesson in patience. It’s fascinating actually. And I’m sincerely appreciative of the lessons I’m continuously learning — about taking time, about being flexible with seemingly rigid facts, about being open to new directions, and about keeping focused on the end goal despite the cloud of minutiae framing my everyday vision. It’s much like traveling in India — dancing in China — and riding a 6-gear bicycle 3,000 miles through Europe. Thankfully I’ve done all three!
