a quiet admiration

Hello friends. This weekend was so full. The weather has been summery and sweet, and we spent a lot of time outdoors. We had an evening picnic, a bonfire, and went for a few long walks. I'm helping my family clean out my uncles estate. It's very hard work, and quite sad, but also very interesting because he and his wife loved home renovation, and did it all in the 50's, 60's and 70's. I actually found a file folder full of old diy and magazine clippings that inspired the renovations they did to their home. It was so fulfilling to know that most of the things I saw in those pages (free standing wood burning fire places, spiral staircases, a loft, skylights, and more) came to fruition. I really admire that actually. How many of us plan, make lists, and think for hours on end about doing things - and they never actually get done. They made it happen. Good on them.

So, although it's a sad time, it's also affirming. I hope one day a very very very long time from now, someone one who loved us will look at what remains of our physical world and admire us for doing, seeing, loving, and truly living when we had the chance.
