Brick by brick; stone by stone.  This is the way we build cities, even countries.

I have never felt right about the creator being a substitute god, maybe because it involves too much responsibility.  All I know is that if I have to be inspired and have the angels sing, the angels fly off to somewhere else and my inspiration fades like last years paint-job.

Building, however, is a way I can make things.  A book.  A painting.  Anything.  Thinking like a construction worker as to how things fit, how high can it go.  Starting from the ground.  Starting with a mess.  Letting it all fall down sometimes.  It’s easier for me that way.  I can make something and know I put it together and if other people like it or not doesn’t really matter all the way.  Inspiration is audience based, while building is activity based.  

Then I can get into the hum.  Then I lose myself, and surprise myself, and place things just right.

Building–a lovely activity that involves all the care and none of the ego.  Perfect.
