  1. Like my grandfather’s golden pocket watch we still have to be wound: obsolete? Perhaps but a treasure nonetheless for those who have the eyes to see, the ears to hear . . .

  2. Brilliant, as your poetry usually is, but sadness leeches out of this one. Maybe I identify that this will come to me in time. I like to look at the beautiful old barn that seems to be at peace with itself as it is.

  3. referred to my own obsolescence in an email to my daughter today. She very kindly replied that I was not obsolete, just antique. I’ll settle for that.
    What is it about the perceived poignancy of old, saggy barns that seems to inspire us?
