"Time gives good advice."
~ Spanish Proverb ~
New construction doesn't always feel like progress. Sometimes it just feels like more clutter on the beautiful earth- a kind of overwhelm and squelching.
There's something refreshing and clean about newness, but it lacks the deep rootedness of what has been restored and loved over time.
I appreciate the longevity of old things, and take care of them so that the might continue to endure.
