From Friday's notes:

Drove past a construction site on my way to work this morning. Yesterday there were "one lane" signs up. Today all the heavy equipment is off the road, in the clearing they made yesterday. Looks like they will be reconstructing the culvert that lets water flow under the road at that point.

The culvert, the concrete work, the clearing of land, the redirection of water flow -- this is infrastructure I suppose. But think of it as the "institutions" we create to shape and form out economy.

The one thing our institutions cannot change is the fact that water seeks its own level. We cannot change the most important thing about our economy.
