DAY 2: The bathroom is fully deconstructed. It’s lovely. I prefer the bare studs and exposed pipes and wires to the old walls and moldy linoleum. Yesterday was messy, loud. Lots of sawing, smashing, dust. Elliott was a bit freaked out and couldn’t take a nap. It was joyous for me.
The start of something new. Rising up.
Need to read “Celebration of Discipline” by Richard Foster first chapter tonight for small group. I have good sources that say it’s excellent. I hope to find the time to read through it. I hope to get something from it that is more than theoretical. I’m somewhat jaded against most Christian living books. I generally get the entire “point” of the book within 3 chapters. They regurgitate, reiterate and repeat themselves for 200 more pages, and I get bored and disinterested, thus loosing all impact and purpose on me. More often than not, I am also appalled at most “popular” books complete lack of cohesion, logic and theologically sound reasoning.
I suppose my vocation leads me to desire a system: relationship of one thing to another, hierarchy, thorough planning, consistency.
It’s hard to find that, in writing, and life (which requires some extensive digging into one’s self). Much work to do; several new clients to give proposals, estimates to, I hope to be able to juggle it all. Anyone there?
