You know the feeling that something very cool is happening even before it happens? It is like a certain buzzing in your spirit and you simply have to wait for the surprise to be uncovered. I bet you know what I mean.
Yesterday I cleared out more stuff from my garage. Currently I have three bags by the door to go to Goodwill before my afternoon kidschlep. I have rescued some items and put them into their proper place. Flat out trash is in a trash bag ready to be dumped.
This morning I went to fetch Samuel’s sweatshirt from my folded laundry and the strangest thing had happened sometime during the night.
It has been as long as my favorite sketch from 1909 has sat in my garage, waiting for me to take it out and hang it.

It isn’t like a basket one could pick up from the front of someone’s house, it is a large, heavy piece of metal. A doorway, a path marker, a “something I have always wanted.”
