... there’s something making me want to stay in bed.. I haven’t felt this in a while.. last time was when I was living in Seattle hoping it would be a snow day.. that day, I got up and walked 3 miles to work in dress shoes.. because I was just that spry of a lad then..!

... enjoy the pics~!

[Morning Entry]

...A LETTER TO A DEAR OLD FRIEND.. the awakening moment was when I had realized that I was simply asking too much.. a defensive stance took the place of their usually casual demeanor.. hostile attack, as if in retaliation, when seeking civil conversation.. am I at war with a historically good relation because of a simple inquiry of a missed mark?.. maybe I should start with a comment on my own missed mark (a sin I’ve committed), to soften the blow that question which may be seen as judgement, to the inquiree.. we may have had the rapport of whimsical parroting, but not yet the permission to dig deeper to the core.. for at the core, we need safety and acknowledgment and understanding.. and acceptance.. perhaps then their guard winds down just enough to converse objectively, strategically, boldly, progressively, and honoring respective inadequacies.. “it’s never too late to say ‘I’m sorry’, ‘thank you,’ and ‘I love you.”... I’m sorry.. thank you.. I love you.. I accept you..

... enjoy the pics~!!!

... another beginning.. Solarium will be a two week build in July, but preparations begins today.. with the end in mind.. rough general outline—materials, plan, timeline, prefabrication, listed resources.. am I missing anything?

... shovel hanger innovation.. the old system was great, but the major flaw was that repair or modification meant that the whole rack had to be removed.. with the new design, hangers are modular so they can be repairs or modified on the fly without removing the entire rack.. the main supporting structure stays in place as well as other hangers that may be working just fine.. also with the new design, hangers can be replaced with hooks or other boards with different attachments..

... enjoy the pics~!!!
