Raise High The Roofbeams!

April 29


For a long time, the work that was being done on the house was either completely invisible or totally obvious. The building of the footings and the foundation seemed to take forever. Then suddenly it was done. The laying of the adobe blocks has been a long process and now it, too, is done (almost). These days, the work is exciting! New stuff is happening all of the time and I am constantly surprised by the rate of progress and also the very cool elements that are being added to the house. All of this work is leading to the ceiling, of course…


Finally, a hike! The Purple Road is a memory now. New plants are popping up to replace the lovely spring flowers that seem to have run out of steam…

  1. One of my favorite titles! And that life-from-death cactus is a cholla, as in choiya.

    • I knew you would enjoy that tip o’ the hat to Salinger. My other favorite title of his is “For Esme, With Love and Squalor.” Not quite sure I can find a way to use that, though… Thanks to you and Wayne for the cactus lesson!
