Sanding. A necessary evil?

Consider the wood an unfolding experience. Each sandpaper grit revealing the everyday relationship the tree underwent. The tree's growing, bending, breaking and mending. The tree's struggle thru the dry years; wood hardened and strong. Tempered. The tree's enjoyment and expansion during a rainy spring. Pushing forth the eternal treasure.

Sanding. Drudgery?

One day I was experienceing the tiredness of hand sanding. Almost forlorn was my state. I saw my cat sitting in the window. Sunlit. Preening it's fur with patient strokes.

I watched, transfixed.

* The cat never moved fast or with effort. Yet, it's coat of fur was always maintained. The cat looked up, in it's eye the answer.
