Recently over the past few months I have been spending time helping a friend do some landscape work.
A stone mason by trade he ran out of help this summer, so, foolishly I offered myself up to give him a hand to finish off some jobs before winter set in.
Little did I know what that would entail.
It’s been more than a few years since I’ve done this kind of work. Oh sure, some general gardening for myself and friends along the way to keep me grouned when I can get it. But moving rock and stone. That’s a different thing.
It’s hours away from the end of another year. The end of the first year of a new decade.
I’ve spent the last few days going over the year and everything it contained. I’ve come up with things I would like to change. In all aspects of my life actually.
I’ve neglected a lot and am vowing not to from this point on.
I’ll be moving forward a lot here. With new thoughts, I have a lot of them, and sharing more experiences here. Not only with Neville, I love the way his mind worked, but how having that as a part of my growth has taken me to a different place of understanding.
After 25 years this song still sends chills up and down my spine and makes my palms sweat. The true meaning of togetherness? All these folks of incredible talent coming together. Some again, some for the first time to do their part to help by raising their voices and opening their hearts for their fellow man.
