How was Stonehenge built?… One stone at a time of course. And while I’ve not moved stones that weight tons with primitive equipment I did spend the majority of my day stacking rocks to make a temporary repair on a retaining wall that was washed out by flooding. The work was slow and a little bit like working a jigsaw puzzle but I enjoyed it. Small stones I could simply toss into place and larger ones I moved with a lever and slid them into place by using metal pipes as a track. I couldn’t help but to think of civilizations from eons gone by building megalithic towers. They had entire populations to move great masses but I did the best one man can do. However, I wasn’t alone. And while my companions had tasks of their own to complete they occasionally buzz over and check my progress. Bumblebees, sweat bees and honeybees would circle around me and then inspect the wall and it’s shrinking hole. Then return to the asters nearby and provide the example of how the most work is done not by speed but by steady progress. She steadily visits one flower at a time until the whole field has been visited and I toss a few more fist sized rocks into the hole. By sundown I look up to see a little bumblebee falling asleep in the middle of her flower just as I place the last stone. My task is done for the season but she’ll pick up where she left off with the first rays of the morning sun.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
