Um-dittle-ittl-um-dittle-I.... yes, still waiting...
Yes, still loving the community I live in, even if not happy with the things going on in the city or the world. This is not a direct slight but rather a reality of our time.
I recall a friend who was building in North Vancouver telling me about his building project and calling it "the house that will never be built". I laughed, not only because he's a funny guy, but because it was a good humoured way of dealing with his situation. At present, I'm really trying to channel that perspective on the local and global madness but most of all this project that is feeling like "the house that will never be built".
One thing is for sure, the waiting game provides time for lots of crazy behind the scenes stories to evolve. Just so you know, those cost extra and I await many entertaining dinners and coffee meetings to take place by anyone, and I mean anyone, who's brave enough to make the offer.
This week's front story is about "the project/house that will never be built" and the saga of it continuing to fall apart. All along the tenants have been amazing and have been kept in the loop of progress, or lack of. Now, I think the House itself is starting to put it's foot down and saying, "Hello, hello could you please get your permits so we can give me some love and company in the back!!" This came through it's voice in the furnace.
When's the last time you've seen one of these?... the story of Airco. It's a simple visual story of Airco deciding to not quite go kaput but making a kind of mild screeching sound; perhaps a small cry for help. Willow, the Airco super cat, comes to the rescue sniffing out the scene and cessing out the situation. She takes a break, as all Super Cats do, then is right back in there solving the problem through some easy cost effective tweaks. Ending, as with all good endings, leaving things well in the world.
Ahhhh, that's all folks, and back to waiting...
