Now that it’s summertime, most of our weekends are filled with commitments. And when we’re not otherwise committed, we’re committed to the barn. But every once in a while, we have a rare moment to slow down. We managed to get to my hometown, Point Pleasant, for the 4th of July holiday, and had a beautiful day on the beach. There we saw my elementary school art teacher, Mitsy; (she’s relaxing in the blue chair in the photo). Needless to say, I haven’t seen her in years. She asked what was new, and inevitably the barn came up in conversation. Mitsy said, “I love American barns! They are perfect geometry.” Spoken like an artist! What a cool thought, and so very true…… as we’ve surely learned, with our posts and pegs and Y-beams. Perfect geometry.
