Something about Nature Hates a Barn

(c)2008 ShootingMyUnivers
There is something inviting about an old barn. We would play in such barns in our youth, building forts in the hay and climbing on the post and beam framing. For boys, barns can be places of great adventure.

Something about Nature hates a barn, trying to pull it to the ground removing all shape and structure as if to reclaim her timbers. She will send armies of insects to gnaw on timbers, dampness to cut the legs out from underneath and wind to remove the roofs.

It is good to see a barn well cared for. Nature will someday have this barn, but not today.
