Too much going on to write in the house!

It's been very hard to get much if any productive work accomplished recently, what with all the constant work going on in our kitchen. So I've processed a lot of Italy pictures and done my best to at least keep a lid on the writing deadlines as they loom.

Yesterday the granite guys showed up to install counter-tops. Good grief those things are heavy! But it's amazing how close to done the place looks with that one dramatic touch. We're beginning to see the "light at the end of the tunnel". Sometime next week - two weeks tops, and we should be able to occupy the new space and actually cook again.

What's interesting is how this process took 13 years to evolve. We both realized the kitchen needed serious help the day we moved here in 1996. There have been a lot of changes over the years, but nothing this radical. At some point - and we've always know this - we were simply going to have to start from scratch.

To be honest, I'm glad we waited. Our style has evolved over the past decade and this is going to be awesome.

I can't help but think about how my "style" is evolving across the board in my life... Bottom line:
  • Stagnant is never good -
  • Reformation needs to be a constant -
  • New ideas must keep pouring in if we are to do justice to anything that means anything -
  • "Cutting Edge" should go a lot further and deeper than my kitchen...
Grace and Peace - DEREK
