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.
