  1. You made me smile with the title AND the image. Both are terrific – the bold contrast is perfect for that fence.

    • I can’t claim originality for the title. It’s taken from a poem I learned at school – Goldsmith’s ‘Deserted Village’ – and seemed appropriate.

      • I figured it was from a poem….we didn’t learn poems in school and I think it’s too bad. It’s such an old tradition, even connecting to ancient oral trasitions in a way, and there are benefits to memorizing poems that probably don’t apply if you never do that.
