A work happens when it is ready, sometimes a few days in a row, other times sitting untouched for weeks. Steady and slow evolution, echoing the process of nature; Creation through removal, a few grams of dust at a time. And life goes on. We have our ups and down, the clock ticks and days pass. People come and go from our lives.  A few more grams are removed. You witness development of your end goal, progress in a small pile. Channels lead in and out, meandering yet with a structure and purpose all their own. Frail and yet strong, in mind as well as in body. Emotional highs and lows, an endless cycle of waves. Losing it all in your work. Push farther and risk losing the work itself. Over and over. The seasons pass, but they will return soon enough. The work will tell you when it is done if you have the patience to listen.  Only through time do we find true understanding of ourselves, and the appreciation of the beauty in nature’s details.
