Ramblings of Unfinished…ness

La Sagrada familia is one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world. It has fascinated me, in that it’s architect, Antoni Gaudi, died before his work could be finished. To this day, it remains unfinished in fact. The thought of beginning a project, something you know people will love, and not being able to see the completion bothered me. At first. Until I realized that I am unfinished as well, and may never be able to see what I intend for my completion to look like. 

But, if I can begin to craft what I intend for the finished product to look like. An outline, to provide an idea of what I had in mind and what I wanted my life’s work to look like… I acknowledge, things may not end up exactly like the blueprint. Do people find it more or less frustrating, to know beforehand, that the schedule of completion is tentative? Or would you prefer to believe things are on schedule, when just the opposite is true?

  1. Ha! MM…this really is a deep question. I guess maybe we don’t stop to think we are really all going to be unfinished… As I’ve gotten older…my ‘blueprint’ has changed and become less and less important. An awareness that we truly do have control over very little has descended!! lol. Thanks for another great post. Always a joy to read. šŸ™‚

    1. I love your feedback on this. It bothers me at times that I don’t have control over my finished product because control has always been so important to me. But I’m learning to love and trust the progress and the journey rather than the outcomes that they bring. šŸ™‚
