Renewal

Our mild winter seems to be turning into spring sooner than imaginable. This week is our winter break. I have been using my time away from teaching to catch up on administrative work. I have also finally had the time to work on a project that I have dreamed of for years.

On our farm there are old cedar trees that died years ago. Every time I pass those trees I see playground stumps, tree blocks, fence posts, possibility. I just spent the last two days moving forward in turning my vision into reality. My friend and neighbor, David Gorman, is a careful and thorough teacher. Under his careful eye I learned how to use his chainsaws. I also learned how to use our farm’s dump truck.

Now comes the work of sawing, sanding, polishing and playing! (after a little recovery time for me. That was hard work!)
