I am going to be moving later this week to a nearby house while mine is being renovated. It will involve a lot of preparation and things will be in upheaval while I am away. I have planned a few projects to keep me busy in the evenings as I will not have internet or cable. When I move back, I will have a beautifully organized and decorated space for myself and my daughter and I am really looking forward to it. This process reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Epictetus:
No great thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.
