I have to stain the trim on the screened-in barn porch A.K.A. The Beech House. It already holds many wonderful memories from its use.
My grandson helped me stack wood on the side of the barn and just the sight of it brings to mind various words: nature’s sacrifice, readiness, warmth, and work !
Speaking of, I’m reading The Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd. What a wonderful work. I recommend it to every woman and every man, as well. We can all relate to how our lives have been shaped by the masculine/feminine imbalance in our world today. This is one of those books that can change your future dramatically.
