It was the setting sun that illuminated the concrete foundations of the house under construction, making them seem even more impressive. I stood next to them with paintbrush in hand and thoughts flowing as freely as the melody in my headphones. Painting the foundations became not only a task, but also an opportunity for reflection. Music was my companion in this painting adventure. The rhythms of sounds guided my brushes, giving the painting its own rhythm. Painting the foundations gave me time to reflect. Looking at the concrete, my thoughts revolved around life and the future, how building this house is a metaphor for our own development. I was fascinated by this process, which seemed so simple on the outside, but on the inside it opened up space for deeper thoughts. As the paint layer on the foundations became thicker, positive changes began to appear. Our house was taking on character and the foundations seemed more solid than ever. In the end, I was proud of my work and the feeling that I was contributing to the creation of a place that would soon be someone’s home. Painting foundations became more than just a task for me. It was a personal experience that allowed me to enjoy simple activities, calm down to the rhythm of music and find balance at height. It was also a reminder that we can find beauty and deeper meaning in everyday activities.
