Since Mom wants us to pause and think about something relatively pleasant every day, I'm adding in my thoughts about my work study job on the 7th floor at PAFA. The stone carving room overlooks a demolition site, future home of the Philadelphia Convention Center. While most people view construction as noisy, dirty, and generally obnoxious, I actually quite enjoy watching the tonka trucks shuffle around dirt and huge cranes hoist even huger burdens. Plus, the sky is wide open in that direction since there is no building to block the view. So I get a blue sky and some fresh air coming in through the window, amidst a bunch of sculptures.
