Reality Check

Barn and silo built  ca. 1920

You may remember this photo 
from page 38 of BUILD A BARN.

I took it on a summer morning in 2015 
at a property less than a half mile from our house.

This is the second barn on that same property.

The photo was taken as a drive-by in late winter 2015.

That second barn was the inspiration
for my SSOBB gallery quilt Flying Lessons.

I took this photo today on my way home from PT.

The property has been sold 
and now the barn is no more.

I know this is the reality of our world,
but it still makes me sad to see
these venerable old buildings destroyed.

So many stories it could have told . . .
