The fence post points to a little cluster of buildings you might just be able to make out. This is the home we built and where we lived for 23 years. I traded a painting for an old empty farmhouse and we moved it onto a small acreage we bought. Later, my father and a good friend helped me build an addition onto the house. Our three kids grew up there...the place is resonant with many memories.
The trees we planted have grown tall. The woman who owns it now has made many improvements and takes very good care of the property. It makes us proud and not a little wistful to think that we started that little "homestead."
There's one thing we don't miss, though: the wind blows like crazy all winter long!
