to be a Library stocking, study preparation for the Foundation
for the Biblical Arts, and for the Freedom ART Project's
continuing art dialog - has left books strewn across my
study floor for lack of bookshelves. Mini towers of history
and academics sprout randomly across an oak expanse. The
books sing rapturously of the understanding to come - and
I count miserly the thoughts before me with glee. Learning
is life. Give me the life found in the arts, and the spiritual.
Humanities, baby! Jokingly a friend of mine and I coined
a T-shirt slogan to sum me up: "LeFever, I'm all about
Dialog." Well - that just may be true. If we are going
to talk, let's go deep.

ORDER there has to be
order - the studio has gotten too loud to think! I spent
the last week in therapy: some Pine planks, oak stain, a
saw, my DeWalt 18 volt cordless, and gloss varnish = new
bookshelves! This is the first selfish and practical creative
outlet I've had in nearly a year. This was a delicious indulgence
putting me in touch with early bohemian roots.
The Studio has
been returned from being a constructions site to a place
of study and presentation. This has been a grand vacation
for me to not mess with business this whole week.
I was reflecting
on the first mention of God's Spirit being given to any
body. It's in Exodus, when God gives His Spirit to the artists
and artisans to craft and decorate the Holy Tabernacle.
Looks like God values artists. And, He did choose an interesting
trade as a carpenter...
