For over a year the people next door have been building a pool. I have already put in my request for daily pool time when it is finished. On the other side of me there is a massive construction project going on with a family’s home that daily increases the volume. Two doors down a new neighbor who moved in a couple of months ago also built a pool. There are days when I want to scream but have trained myself to laugh as I listen to the competing sounds of the three projects that make for a very off key symphony, And for the last month the main street in Ojai near my house is under construction. Today while I had to take a detour to get to my own house, I thought why am I living in a construction zone? Since I believe outer experience as a reflection of inner reality then I must be under renovation as well. I can’t wait to see what I will be like when I am all finished.
