Renovation Anticipation The Fountain

November 6, 2021

Reflections, DFay 29

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”
― Audrey Hepburn

This fountain stands as a challenge to me every time I pass it. My redesigning, planning, and restoring the landscape property is a small part of the overall  house restoration project. The property has been neglected for years so it will take a while to bring it back to better than its original splendor.

A lot of people would try to rebuild and repair all of the issues that have been caused by neglect. The owner and project director on this job is taking time to move slowly and carefully toward the final objective.

I walked around the property yesterday to decide on the next steps. When I passed the fountain each time, I said, “You just wait.”

I want to be there when that sucker cranks up and spouts water. That will be a treat. But other things come first. I’ll be patient and study on it.

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at
