If the Walls Could Talk series# 89-92

February 21, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I've made hundreds of images over the years of old abandoned homesteads, houses and barns. I am intrigued, not just by the buildings, but by the lives of the people who may have lived and worked in them.  I often imagine a story, a scenario of what might have been inside these crumbling walls, giving breath once again to the people who called it home. These are my stories, brief glimpses into the past. Continuation of series, images 89-92.

Places a pitcher of milk on the table. Runs her hands down the front of her apron, turns back to the stove. Born twelve children. Seven survived. The babe she carries now will come soon. Perhaps another mouth to feed. Perhaps not.

An old man now. Remembering that day. Choice he made echoed through every minute of his life. Like ripples on the water when a stone is thrown in.

Didn’t have much. Could pack it all in one wagon load.  But the Lord’s blessed them with all they need. Enough to eat. Each other.
