So, let’s build this house!
As you can see in this photo the stone masons have finished the foundation. And, what a job they did. A solid stone foundation that will last for millennia.
Dan, the head mason on this project, passed away a few years ago from cancer. On occasion he would talk about his work and how it would be a testament to his life after he was gone. He was right.
There is something wonderful in creating a piece of art that will last. I get a sense of purpose out of it, in that I did something that will last, and be treasured after I’m gone.
I encourage everyone to build something, something that’s unique… if not a house, then maybe a shed, or a piece of furniture, or a piece of art to hang on the wall.
