Walnut Library

"There are known-knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known-unknowns; that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown-unknowns; the ones we don't know we don't know."- Don Rumsfeld

What if you decide to write a story about your latest project, and you wanted to include in your story the thinking part and the sequence that goes into it? But right from the beginning, you constantly become reminded of other things kind of related to building a library, but kind of not. Then you come up with these small side-line topics and do some digging into each, with the resources that are available to you. But then you worry, that somewhere out there you are missing this huge amount of important information that later might make your efforts appear dreadfully....... dreadful. No, distracted. Something reminds me of something else, and that reminds me of something else. I say to myself, "Pull yourself together-Man!" This isn't brain surgery. Well, in this case, it is, sort of. Focus, stay engaged. Can you write things this way? Or will it cause people to worry about you? Oh well, I am going to go for it anyway.

This is sooooo gorgeous!!! I am so happy to see that you now have a blog for others to see just how amazing you are!

As for your post, blog followers tend to be a little on the ADD side anyway...Blogs are perfect for those that enjoy a road with lots of "side tracks"! (You'll probably end up with a lot of Cardon Family followers Haha!) So...just go for it! :)

That's the beauty of blogging--there are "no rules!". You just write how you think! Reading your post is like sitting right next to you! I like that!

Great job Jim...I am a dedicated "follower"! XO

Jim, you are one of my heros! I would love to have you build me a library like Doug's but I don't have the house to put it in. However, I want you to know that if I did, you would be the one who would build it! I hope you know how much we all love and admire you not only for the man you have become but for your incredible talents that you share with so many! Love to you and Cari! Sally and Major

I was talking to my mom about your library tonight, I am in love with it. When I picture my dream library, it is like yours but about ten times less cool, you did an amazing job! I think that I am guilty of lust after your library, will you make me one?!
