Tunnel to nowhere-
hidden among rocky slopes.
Our ongoing (but slowly progressing) household projects have prevented me from hiking or finding inspiration in my surroundings. Seriously, all I can see are trenches of rocks and partial fences… I’ll do an update next week!
A couple months ago, the scouts went on a hike to an out-of-the-way destination so the boys could see a tunnel to nowhere. I was intrigued by the story. Apparently, it was going to be a railroad tunnel, but about thirty feet in, the plan was scrapped. Now, it’s basically a cave… a damp, musty one with a great deal of graffiti on the walls.
This got me thinking about what separates finished projects from ‘nowhere’ tunnels. It could be a matter of drive, planning, or the result of unforeseen factors that impede progress. I keep this in mind as days go by with no progress on trenches or fencing. As long as we do a little each day, we are getting somewhere.
I’m curious – how do you extract inspiration that has been buried under the rubble of “life”?
