I like challenges, and I sure seem to have picked one in taking my folks bathroom and making form and function come together AND bring the elements to help them with the effects of aging. I don’t really know where and how I learned all the skills needed to do this, it wasn’t all at one time, but much like the work we are doing with controlled environment spaces – all the work stems from an idea of, “can we make a new way to …” in that case the spatialization of immersive audio fields – ideally live – was what made all the parts of the matrix of me, seem to come together.
so mom and dad are at my brother's, and I have 72 hours to demolish and get a bathroom back to functionality while basically also tiling walls, floors, and all the fun plumbing too.
rather than sit and write about it, how about I shut up, get to work, say a prayer and do the best I can with all the various skills and create something not only nice but functional. it amazes me what people will pay for the renovation. I have no clue what a new bathroom costs, but the nice lady at the plumbing/bathroom store told my mom what hers would cost and I was like, “you are kidding me. people will pay that much for a new bathroom?”
I digress and don’t want my sarcasm with life and the good stress of a time limit and the reality of materials that need to dry and cure to cut through the morning fog…or is it still going to rain again today?
I must confess, I don’t think the ground can hold any more water here. if you don’t hear from me for 72 hours..it means I ran into more issues and surprises than I anticipated. so far, just one…but that is something that can be worked around.
if only I didn't care about continuity, form, and function anymore….it would be a lot simpler.
as for the photo today, well…this is what you call a guy missing a great photo opportunity. it was pouring rain, and had I been paying attention, I would have noticed the woman sooner, and/or I would have hoped someone was walking the other way. I just pulled up the camera and this is what I got. it is very different than what I imagined in my mind, yet, that is ok….it just is a reminder to know my butt will be getting firmer and stronger with demotions and tile work, and that I have to pay attention to observing life around me better. have a great day.
