Regardless of whether you intend it or recognize it, the structures around you form who you are. The way your time is structured, the way your spaces, home, workplace, church are structured are all formative. They all influence who you are.

We shape the world we live in, which in turn shapes us.

(My takeaway from a discussion spawned out of my admiration of - and a friend's disgust for - the beautifully ornate architecture of the historic churches in San Francisco, as compared to a equally expensive multi use conference center of a church facility.)

Having dwelt and served for more than forty years in the late Chamber, and having derived very great pleasure and advantage therefrom, I, naturally, should like to see it restored in all essentials to its old form, convenience and dignity.
