"Art is never finished, only abandoned." ~ Leonardo da Vinci
During this past Sunday's drive, I passed several closed buildings and one small home that was plastered with keep out signs. I wonder about both groups but decided not to photograph the house warning me to stay away...camera's can be violating. The property, in yesterday's post, with empty
cattle pens also had all the abandoned/empty buildings. Are these fences and buildings closed forever? Or are they used seasonally. There is something sad about boarded and abandoned building...most especially in a place where there are no visible people or critters - no one to bear witness to the history of the place. Does anyone come back here...now and then? Is there an annual hustle, bustle, sweat and grime that goes with farming? Are animals bellowing in protest at being forced in from the "open range" or is that all a thing of the past? Is there dust and dirt in the air from activity or is the desert wind the only rearranger of earth here? Perhaps a look-see in the fall will reveal life afoot something other than wind, water, sage brush, trees and birds and thier much needed insects using the space.
Water or grain or something else all together?
