At Work – Listening

by Chaptergrams 

Tick, tick, tick.  Clink, clink, clink. Buzz-drill, buzz-drill, buzz-drill.  The sounds of carving the limestone lintel over the main entrance to the Chapter Room echo through the Chapter House. Since January, three members of the Community, have been working on this creation morning, noon and night. They plan to be done this month.

One of the carvers gave me a sneak peek this noon time. Upon seeing the intricacy and beauty of the carving, I am in awe.  Thinking of  how long this building will stand – thinking of the scores of people who will walk under that lintel – thinking of the words chiseled…”Listen My Son”………thinking.
