Building on ancient wisdom...
Seeing the flurry of home improvement activity going on all around the neighbourhood, I can't help but think of the story about the grasshopper and the ant.
I don't recall seeing any serious projects being undertaken while the days were dry and long, but for some reason roofs are now being replaced in the harvest moonlight, and fences are springing
up like chanterelles in the autumn rain.
I'll be lined up at the building store with all the other grasshoppers this weekend, getting ready to start those tasks that we had all summer to do. Like dealing with that annoying ant problem, for example.
As the wise old man said, Patience, young grasshopper. Good things are coming.
That would be a carpenter, and I hope he gets here soon.
