January 06, 2011 6:47pm âRachel Kennedyâ, I really like the way âHard Woodâ can lead to the SOFTER side of life? I donât mean to imply that every thing has to be SOFT. In fact; some THINGS are better HARD? Take this wood for instance; it has to be HARD to support the daily traffic it must endure. It has to be HARD to withstand the POUNDING and physical contact over the years. It has to be HARD to illustrate softness. Every board is like a singular âPlank of Hardnessâ. Each board individually cut; but joined together in a PLURAL âExpression of Hardnessâ. I hope Iâm not making this too HARD for your viewers to understand. I HOPE you donât make this too HARD for me to ENDURE...?
