I had a light in storage.
I had a light in storage for a long time.
I had a light in storage for a long time because I, a very long time ago, took it apart, stripped it of the caked-on paint covering all the metal components, and then…just let it sit in a box for a very long time.
I had a light which was ignored while 795,628 other things were going on.
But now, I have a light…
There is something intensely satisfying about taking on a seemingly abandoned project and finishing it.
As these words are written the fixture is hanging behind me in my office, lighted. I keep turning around in my desk chair and staring at it.
And my heart feels joyful.
For, something is just a bit better with the world.
