Let's go with: transformation.
Put together our bathroom vanity this afternoon. All I have to say is: whoever made those instructions should be buried up to their neck in a field of hungry ants.
Tonight we bought a used fireplace for a really good price. Now I want to chop even more wood! Perhaps one day I shall not talk about fireplaces or woodchopping.
That day is not today.
These were trees in a forest at some point. Now they're stacked in the field, waiting.
Now some of it has been chainsawed down to size and chopped to bits with that axe you see there.
And now it's burning away to nothing in the fireplace, warming the house in the process.
It's been interesting watching transformation on such a large scale. It makes you think about other conversions we don't get to witness. Like how and when and where did that bit of cardboard that's doing such a fine job of containing the milk come from?
