Tikkun Olam

Kevin and his son worked here two days, preparing the rusted deck of tractor mower. Twenty years of me neglecting to wash wet grass from its underside caught up with me and the thing practically broke in half the last time I took it to the fields.

Two days and a pocket full of cash and an inspiring amount of inventiveness and hard work later, it’s good as new. Watching Kevin figure out what needed to be done, watching his experience our into an idea multiplied by 16 hours of tedious labor seemed like I was watching a hero quest – as a good ole boy and his troubled adult son healed the world, right before my eyes.
