Winter Refuge

The snow rests softly on the weathered wood. The old barn witnesses another change of season. There was a time when there was no better place to ride out the storm. The well built roof was able to shed the heaviest snow pack and the straw inside was warm and dry even without a fire. The old cliche of a weary traveler seeking refuge in the barn of a sympathetic farmer became a cliche for a reason. In a place and time when inns or motels were a rare find, the shelter of a barn was a welcoming environment. As a child I would dodge into my grandfather’s barn to hide from a sudden rainstorm or if I just got cold while playing in winter. But after so many decades of emptiness the old barn in tonight’s feature image doesn’t really even keep the light out. And yet just when you think that it’s been completely abandoned as a useless shell you see the movements inside through the cracks in the slats. A whole flock of small birds have taken the old barn as their own and whole families are kept warm and safe from the icy blasts of winter.
