What’s in a name???

I called this ‘Out Of The Wind’ all the time I was working on it but, because I imagined the two people lost in their thoughts at the end of a day, but still very much together, it reminded me of a poem I’d read called ‘Two Solitudes.’

Without any explanation I presented both titles to a few people. They all disliked ‘Two Solitudes.’ I assume that it was a negative thing for them, the two people were angry at each other. Or something.

The poem reads: Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.

Long story short, by the time I got it into ‘Insights’ it was called ‘Out of the wind.’

 

New Studio

What kept me goingWhat kept me spending long hours last summer turning this old shed into a great studio was the thought that we could be inside working on those icy cold, snowy winter days.

I had to go out in the icy cold, snowy winter night to take these pics of my partner at work.

Hay Pulley

These hay pulleys ran along a track near the peak of the barn roof. The bottom pulley clipped onto a large fork that dropped down and stuck into loose hay on the wagon just in from the field. The rope was attached to a team of horses that would pull the hay up to where it could be dropped into the loft. Hot, dusty, sweaty work.
