So far the plan for the new barn floor has been flawless. The logs and lumber arrived yesterday, all the way from Pembroke, and look well up to the job. 4x[photo]. Trees seem less part of the equation when they arrive as nice, clean machined sticks as when they land as logs. Those trees are paid about 50 cents a year to grow. Thank you. We have stripped the bark off them and work on machining them will start in a few days. Watch that space.
After two weeks of work by Prasert and the community of 8-12 hours a day the lobby shrine is (almost) complete. The only thing remaining to do is the painting of the two devas that flank the main Buddha image – three coats. This would be a good job for someone over the next… whenever. It all looks rather stunning. There is a separate photo album showing the progress of this work.
Wildflowers, bees, bugs, buds, birds, nests, leaves, grass, warmth, sun, summer. You too are welcome to put in an appearance and enjoy all these seasonal arisings.
