The work is being done and so developed.
The wind is being run after and before, depending on the daytime and the time of the day.
The contours are being traced and connected (not always) with patience.
There is time and space to teach, share my knowledge and so grow constantly. The teaching has become an important part of my work and satisfaction of working.
