one falling barn and one barn in service on the outskirts of Rugby, TN.
I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas. It brings people together while time stands still - Rachel Cohn

Northern Massachusetts, 2011.
Once I dreamed I was in a barn in a field.
Mrs. S is filming me and a bunch of people doing classic tik toks. L said to me earlier that I didn’t need to be ashamed of tik tok because everyone had one. And I was like okay but I don’t have a tik tok so it doesn’t matter and she was like I know I was talking to my self.
Then the fire alarm goes off and we all obediently follow protocol.
I meet mom and she has me perform a chemical reaction on her backpack. The backpack nearly explodes while it’s still on her and I freak out.
Then I’m in the church parking lot doing that photoshop warp thing but on a real person while they dance. I then hit the reverse button to watch them unwarp.
M laughs at that and we talk for a bit and then go into the church and set up the seats.
I feel like I’m home because this is technically the church I grew up in but doesn’t feel like church for some reason. Everything is wrong.
Miss B comes up and scolds some guy for calling the white house hotline because he had a sore throat. He was like well sorry but I’m a millionaire I couldn’t remember which number was the emergency one.
Then brothers and I are at Miss A and she and I are feeding baby Z. T is playing video games and Z can talk and so can E and then I get mad at J for poking me.
Then Miss A shows me her weird toilet and then we eat slightly burned sandwiches while we watch a side story Aladdin movie.
Aladdin and Jasmine meeting the Genie.
Jasmine gets spooked by robbers as they are sneaking out of the city and they almost get caught.
After escaping and running for a long time. They sit in a tree and catch their breath and talk. They play a game to see what pictures are formed by the knobs in the trees. Super romantic moment with nice romantic music.
Then these African gunmen pull up and they were going to die.
Oh and during the whole dream at random moments a character pops up reminding me to take a birth control pill to help with my periods. But I don’t want to take birth control.

Yesterday was the day for the farrier to trim Hero’s hooves.
He is such a good boy on Hoof Day . . just stand quietly and seems to be enjoying the attention.
Nutmeg, however, wanted all the attention for herself, and had to be tied to prevent her from becoming a nuisance. Lady, of course, keeps an eye on everything that goes on. And she thinks hoof trimmings are the best dog snacks ever. Our farrier told me that he had a career in finance of some sort, then decided to ditch it and shoe horses for a living. He is happy with his decision. As I put in ten years at a desk job myself, doing Pension Actuary Stuff, I can totally relate.

Birb on a barn! Shot with a retro 1970s 300mm lens.
When architect Robert Felson began renovation on this 100-year-old barn in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., he decided to leave it on its site and to leave the original siding intact. The maximum amount of light, required by the owners, gives this structure its contemporary look.
