For this episode of Carpe Diem I love to challenge you to create a haiku in which you have hidden a deeper knowledge .... maybe a spiritual layer ... it's up to you. Try to "contact" your inner spiritual knowledge and bring it out in the open in the hidden way of the Alder ... "the haiku under the trees".

In another lifetime a home was remodeled.  Kitchen gutted and walls knocked down then rebuilt several feet away.  Custom cabinets were hand manufactured.  Finally installation of the beautiful, raw alder wooden cabinets was complete.  The application of the stain changed the beautiful wood to a garish red tone.  Melt downs followed by another trip to the home improvement store.

    1. Glad you like the post. Of course it really happened! Best cabinets I ever had, just had to be a little darker than intended < : O
