This afternoon, on my way home, as I walked into the street (same one in the photo) I felt a sense of unfamiliarity scratch at my subconscious’ “familiar”—you know the way you don’t think/necessarily look at the path before you step when you’re in your street? Yay, that “familiar”!
I felt something was off.
It was first in the air, it smelt of petrichor. Then, I stepped on supposed solid ground, and my shoe dipped.
Apparently, one of the house owners on the street is investing in a new source of income.
I offhandedly asked (in my head) “Why’s this street so messy?” and almost immediately, I heard “Because someone is building! It’s always messy around places where work is in progress.”
I also remembered that the theme for this CMDA year is “God’s building“, and I smiled.
Things may get messy before they get beautiful. 😊
