Mark left on Monday for Houston, to work with Best Friends Animal Society for a month, where they’re working on re-uniting the rescued animals with their people. I’ll miss him, of course, and we won’t spend our anniversary together (tomorrow, 22 years married) but I’m super proud that BF contacted him to see if he would be willing to go. 🙂
This is the latest photo of the inside of our house. Lots of windows, and a soaring ceiling line. Ironically, it will probably be finished while Mark is gone.
And regarding the motto….Mark & I went to Clark County Fairgrounds a couple of Fridays ago, to attend a Tiny House celebration/show sort of thing. It was REALLY cool, because it wasn’t just THOW, it was converted buses, and vans as well, and getting to meet the people/families/dogs that lived in them full-time, and traveled. I LOVED their enthusiasm, and their passion for their lives. And I REALLY loved seeing the VERY different personalities that their homes had. One of the things I’m really looking forward to with ours, is making it OURS. It will be a work of art when it’s finished by Abel, but I’m so looking forward to adding our art, and cats, and our stuff. Our homes have always had a lot of personality, and this one is starting out with so much, I think it’s seriously going to be a gem.
At the Tiny House celebration, I was behind a women at one point, who had several buttons on her backpack. I was reading them, when one of them hit me with the force of a thunderbolt. It was like the skies opened and the universe handed me a message that seriously resonated down through the soles of my feet, and into my soul.
Unfuck the World.
I have never had 3 words affect me the way these three have. It wasn’t even a decision to make this my motto, my guide, my muse, for the remainder of my life. It just was instantly a part of me. And I will do what I can, whether it’s cooking/baking for friends and family, expanding my mind and my heart, making art, and volunteering to help cats (and bats, and pitties, etc) – I think every positive thought, gesture, step, action I take, that we ALL take will help to achieve this.
Let’s work together to Unfuck the World.
A very worthy motto indeed! And as a carpenter I love seeing the progress pics, this house will be fantastic!
I can’t wait to see your THOW with all of your finishing touches! What exciting time for the both of you. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Mike will be joining Mark on 10/10, so I guess we will both be “rescue widows.”
I want a tee shirt that says ” Unfuck the world”
Just beautiful! Not sure why, but something about it reminds me of the interior of an old fashioned, hand crafted ship with its graceful lines and elegant ceiling. And since I have no ship experience, I don’t know why that is. Must have been in a prior life. LOL. You’ll be living inside a work of art; that’s for sure. Very cool that BF contacted Mark to help in Houston.
Is the THOW finished? In your post you stated that it would probably be completed while Mark was in Texas. The suspense is killing me!!
