Final Day at SMdP

…and what a last day it was.  The day was long, hard, sweating, cutting, bruising, blistering, exhausting, and in the end extremely satisfying to finally be done and produce something really beautiful.  Joann, RJ, Dave, Shawntel, and myself had our hands full when thinking about what to do with the site.  3 things were clear, we had to accentuate the procession into our sites, give importance to this little building/pavilion, and ultimately lead to an expression at the garden.  Clear and consise we got to work clearing away years of dirt built up on top of the concrete, broke up and added nicer soil to the planting areas, got plants, made banners with orange and green cloth, and creating path after path.  It took from morning to the last minute to finish the project.  It was beautiful and everyone was very excited to see how much progress we made in only 1 day.  Additionally, one older gentleman was astonished that It look so good because he remembers the days when the area was lush, green, colorful, and well maintained.  To see a progress leading in a direction that was in the past a very desirable space to be in was a true vision in his eyes.  Many enjoyed our site for the interactions and thoughtfulness but behind every move we made.  Although each move individually were only small steps, the whole composition of each of these moves was what made the project so intriguing and, at least in my eyes, very pleasant and satisfying.

Arrivaderci and Siena is next.  Although SMdP had its ups and downs, in the end it was well worth it.  I would like to thank Lorenzo and Julia for putting up with us and helping us with every step.  Additionally, both Lorenzo and Julia pushed for us to immerse ourselves in the project and to just not give up.

Thank you for the experience.
