A few days before committing to the purchases, my friend had introduced me to this quiet, calm man while she and I were visiting another way cool project (that’s her story so I can’t tell it). He was building a house, I had told him about what I might be about to do and he had given me his phone number. The day after I signed, I called Jorge and we made a plan to meet over there.
Excited to be there with him and equipped with many questions (I have a page on my phone called “Things to Ask Jorge”), I knew he would want to see a drawing so before going to bed, I drew my vision on paper. It came right out of the pencil, having played with it while my family was here for Christmas.
But when I was standing there, under the morning sun, and asked to show what I had, I got a little shy and wondered if Jorge was going to laugh at it.
