About

I am a honey bee,
Shut out from the colony.
And they won’t let me in,
So, I left the hive.
They took away all my stripes,
And broke off both my wings.
 
So I’ll find another tree,
And make the wind my friend.
I’ll just sing with the birds,
They’ll tell me the secrets of the world.
 
But my other honey bee,
Is stuck where he doesn’t wanna be.
But my darling honey bee,
I’ll come save you even if it means,
I’d have to face the queen.
 
Ba da ba da da dum,
Ba ba ba da da da dum.
 
So, I’ll come prepared,
My new friends say they will help me,
Get my loved one back.
They say it isn’t right,
The bee’s have control of your mind,
And I choose not to believe them.
 
So we’ll meet in the darkness of the night,
And I promise I will be there on time.
We’ll be guilded by my new friends the butterflys,
Bring us back to our own little hive.
 
Oh, my darling honey bee,
No longer stuck where he doesn’t wanna be.
Oh, my darling honey bee,
I have saved you and now that you’re with me,
We can make our honey.
 
Ba da da ba dum bum,
Ba da ba da da da dum.
 
“Honey Bee” –  Zee Avi
 

When I started my blog in the summer of 2009, I listed to “Honey Bee” By Zee Avi about 20 times a day. I loved it. It made perfect sense to me. It connected with me. I was the honey bee. I never really fit in. Never connected. And yet I am resistant. I can make the most of anything and survive.

And yet, I was more than that. I was more than the bee in the song. I was a strong bee who accomplished a lot. I liked to do a lot of things. I am an architect by education and profession. I am a crafter by heart. And I can whip up a cake blind folded.

What was I?

I was a honey bee.

I design and build. I create. I make take care of those around me.

That is who I am.

That is what this blog has become.
