Yep ... rain for the 3rd day in a row. This is Western North Carolina's version of a "rain forest." It is absolutely beautiful. Steady, persistent, enveloping. The richness of the dense green in every direction is so alive. I ... alone ... in my Workshop ... just like back in the days I began this journey of musical instrument re-creation. My prayer for YOU is that you feel blessed ... no matter your circumstance. Life is all around you even as darkness might be beckoning. Don't succumb to a trying "circumstance." Rather ... press on ... give thanks ... be still ... and KNOW.
