The forces of nature played a large part in my productivity throughout the residency, inspiring moments of joy, beauty, and catharsis, when the weather was pleasant. On the contrary, the exposure to wet periods hindered the curing process, and storms during the construction phase could have been problematic. What I feel forms this appreciation, is its total unpredictability and variation. Shedding light on the good times until it is necessary to brace and heal from the bad.
