I've never been what I consider a spiritually inclined person but something is happening to me as I begin the digging of what will be my home. I so thoroughly enjoy the rhythm of the movements, the sense of accomplishment as I see the hole and pile of soil each getting bigger, the physical strengh required to accomplish the first step of many toward completion, the quiet and concentration (or lack thereof) of working in solitude. I decided to start on the bathroom because I wanted to get a feel for how difficult the digging would be and how long it would take to dig this small area on my own. Then a funny thing happened. I decided that this was too special to share, even with the people I love, my children and my friends. I know that soon I'll realize it's time to get real and allow others to join me but for now I can't imagine having to take the needs of another into consideration, making sure I've brought enough food and water, a bathroom strategy worked out, dealing with someone who has other commitments and needs a ride back to their car, or even having to keep up my end of a conversation. Maybe it isn't really a spiritual experience but it feels as if it is to my mind. I was trying to explain this to my mother today and she said she's not surprised, that I've been this way since the day I was born. I'm not anti social. I am looking forward to entertaining guests, showing off my cob house and explaining all that went into it. But for now i just want to immerse myself in my project, thinking, planning, imagining, smiling. Thank you all for the good suggestions and cob comeraderie.
