Lynn lent me a book by Terry Tempest Williams, "Finding Beauty in a Broken World". She muses about the workers who built the Church of San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy, which was consecrated in 547 AD. "I imagine both the concentration and the wandering of minds as they labored over time in the repetitive trance of craft." I feel like one of those workers -- while working on the project, I feel "in the zone". It is so pleasurable to be there in the studio, working together. It is a meditative experience. -- Lola
