Today we got our first three floor boards. They are not long, only 42″. The boards were laid on the landing at the bottom of the 10″ log stairs. I realized that there were only 3 and a part of a 4th board. As my eye traveled upwards I saw a pattern.

I am usually very good at spotting patterns. I was once asked if I would consider being a police detective since I was good at spotting patterns. When I collected my data for my dissertation I collected 144 questions from 1180 people. After there data were coded I had over 600 data points for each person. This was before the advent of data bases so I had what was called a “flat file”. Each person had 7 1/2 lines of data then the next person’s data started. Some people had more. I had nearly three quarters of a million data points. needless to say there were a lot of errors to find and fix. There were a lot of new concepts so it was impossible to know how to code them directly into functioning computer code. I spent hours and hours scanning monster files.

In fact I did find patterns. I won’t say my dissertation would change the world but a few people noticed. I noticed the patterns.

I have noticed patterns at our house. I missed the 10″ pattern. Half of a 10″ log for our stairs, half of a 10″ log for our siding. 10″ floor boards. Now that I know the pattern is there I will seek it out.

Pattens are how we recognize our world. Patterns will help us know how to finish the new house and when done and we live i upstairs full time, the patterns will guide us in the ways we should go.
