Being home-bound inside, due to not only the directives on COVID-19 but also my broken leg, I have been looking at some of my earlier photos. This image remains one of my all-time favorites and it seems to have much symbolism for our present times. The old weathered barn has stood the ravages of time – peeling and faded paint, a hinge askew, a window missing. What events has it been through? What stories can it tell? The sunlight streams from an angle across its faded front emphasizing it’s age. The sun doesn’t reach the inside of the barn where it is dark and black. And yet on the far side of the barn, through the opposite openings, there is a green field. Grasses are blowing, a fence line and trees are visible. There is renewal beyond the old barn. There is sunshine and green grass ahead.
Stay safe and be well. There are greener pastures and sunnier days ahead. We will weather these times.
