On Halloween went out looking around and found an old abandoned house. This old red chair was out in the yard and for some reason it appealed to me. There were other things around that were equally appealing. I sort of like old and abandoned places. They spark my imagination and I start to think about who lived there. I wondered where the family had gone, whether a Hispanic family had lived there and were forced to leave when the chicken processing plants shut down during the recent economic downturn, did the old tractor suggest they were farmers? There was a poster in the window describing how hard but dependable women were. Could this have been a single parent family’s home? Was it a home operated beauty shop? All sorts of things that are found in the rural South passed through my mind.
