take on the darkness…

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” August Wilson

Don’t you wonder?

“The barn standing so simple, embraced with time past, an old dwelling full of memories that forever last.   Rain dripping down the eaves, rabbits burrowing underneath the leaves.   Walking with my mind back to days untold, a path in which my father tread until he was very old.”  Lorraine E. Watson, Ode to the Old Barn

forgotten barn…

old vines reach upward
faded red siding gives way

old, seldom used…

along a remote road in Central Oregon (above Rufus). Standing alone with the modern wind turbines and power lines in the hazy distance.

a place in the country…

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.” Carolyn Jourdan, Heart in the Right Place

one has to have faith…

in the path to renewal and new beginnings…the bleak, decaying cornfield cannot become the visual one carries through the Winter doldrums 🙂

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
