The Days Rush By

As we finish accessories and final adjustments the days are rushing by.  Everything – always – taking just that much longer to finish, the list seeming shorter, the list seeming longer, the list always counting on things going as planned.  There is less flexibility and more fierce concentration this last week.  Things have to be finished, finished soon, but finished to our high level of workmanship.  It's a challenge and a thrill.
