Treehouse Memorial -repost

(I had the security settings for the Flickr images set wrong so the slide show wasn't working. They should be working now.)
I just went and read some of my early posts from when I began building my treehouse. I remember thinking back then that I would mostly use this blog to post updates about the my progress. Little did I know all the events that would get covered here. Looking back it makes me smile to think of all the terrific times I spent in my backyard playing with my tools; sometimes on the ground and other times hanging from a branch. I’ve really enjoyed having grown-up sized resources to follow small-person sized dreams. For me it’s all about doing something that I am passionate about. In my career I haven’t chosen to follow a passion, so in other parts of my life I don’t want to waste any time. I’ve also been joined by a faithful group of supporters and builders. I caught the passion for this treehouse while helping build one for Greg. Since I have started mine, he has been by my side every step of the way. Without his faithful assistance I would probably still be hoisting the main beams. Others have helped too and to each of you I am thankful and look forward to using your help on the rebuild. Here’s some previously unpublished photos that make me smile. Enjoy.

Never give up... Live strong.

Just think of how many more opportunities you will have to build relationship, while re-building your tree house. Maybe, just maybe, I can get in the action.

Thanks for the memories... looking forward to having more with you and Christa.

peace.

I look at your pictures with a lot of sadness. They are wonderful photos. It was such a great project you were able to involve so many people as well as your dog. I am sure that Treehouse II will be even better. I feel like a part of the project ust by reading your posts, thanks for involving all of us.
Looking foreward to seeing you soon.

I have kept up with your treeshouse saga, but not yet commented on it. I am encouraged that you will start over. Somehow this all reminds me of how as humans we fail, or "make mistakes" but God always gives us a second chance. To try again and learn from our prior mistakes.

Jas, this is Jimmy,

I'm with Trinity White; my heart sank when I saw the pictures. I know how much this project means to you and in a strange way it means alot to us, your friends. I think some of us are living vicariously through your adventursome, risk taking, industrious spirit. You must rebuild! You've got another recruit in the building brigade now. I can't help often, but I would like to help some.

I think my feelings are best described by a famous quote from the whimsicle british superstars - the Teletubbies - "Again, Again!"

Just to clearify, I mean the construction, not the desctruction.
