Essays taken from a weekly newspaper column published in the Washington County News, Washington, Kansas. Look for my book, "Dispatches From Kansas," available from Amazon.com, or from the author.
All are great, but my fave is the one looking out the window. Once again I feel jealous of all the abandoned America you have around.
Reece - -I discovered a wealth of abandoned houses and old barns on the western side of the county, so now I'll have some serious exploring to do. Two really caught my eye but required hikes and with my deadline kicked up for the holiday I couldn't spare the time. Maybe next week if the weather holds, which I don't think it will. The cabin you liked intrigued me enough to want (need) to learn its history.
That poor book. Lots of things "get to me" about abandoned homes, but that book (and the bird cage) are especially poignant.I looked and looked last night - do you have a "search" function here? I was wanting to see some of your photos of windows, but didn't have the time to go through each entry. I'm looking especially for that one that was up in the barn - actually I think it might have been open doors, looking out over the landscape ;-)
Linda -- There's a search engine for the website but it's about as effective as Newt Gingrich's Contract with America. I've been looking at other web hosts that will enable me to post everything to a gallery so finding images would be easier, and not only for readers but for me as well. I think it's my winter project but I've already got a list of winter projects and I honestly hope winter isn't long enough to finish them all. Good grief I'm rambling today but I'm exhausted and have to keep plugging away. Early deadlines make for long hours and sleepless nights.
