Picking Dead Stuff


Despite the fact that I’m still just trying to recover from the retreat that ended last week, another one is coming this weekend. Potpourri is on the agenda (among many other things) so I was out for a walk yesterday to see what was available right now around here.

The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
