A Wooden Riddle I walk through walls, but I'm not dead. (as they are unfinished) I try to keep the plans, locked in my head. From the morning I wake up, until the time I hit the bed. Sheetrock, green board, sand block whitewash! A new life... for a young man following his God, the "true carpenter". Speed square all's fair, math done in pencil. Left on the wall, before painting. The magic of building, with hands guided; can not be anything, less than > art.
