Life is a journey. Projects are more often in-process than completed. But sometimes... projects are completed.
The city has almost finished the sewer/road project in front of my house. Today, they put down the first of two layers of asphalt. Tomorrow... they finish.
For Fathers' Day, I bought myself two star jasmine plants. One thing led to another, and now, many weeks later, I have a new fenced-in patio with a star jasmine. I also have a new trellis by my back door with the second star jasmine attached. The plants signify the end of that project. Completed: today!
Several weeks ago I bought an e-book: The Gabriel Method -- The Revolutionary Diet-Free Way to Totally Transform Your Body. I finished it yesterday, including the appendix. The book is done and the transformation has begun: I'm eating much better!
Ahhh... Life is a journey, and sign-posts get passed. Some times things get finished. I savor those moments. I've taken a lesson from the theater industry. When a production closes, they have a cast party. They celebrate the finish. They relax. They party.
Then... because life is a journey... the next adventure begins.
I've never been much of a personal historian. Until five years ago, I rarely took pictures. Sometimes I'd click my ears and blink: "Remember this Don." Now I have a camera and a blog. On-line scrap-booking? Sharing my milestones in photographs and paragraphs?
Yes. Party on!
