Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

Old Images

leave a comment »

I was exploring old images and came upon these shots from 2013, our first spring on this property. We were in the process of installing new fencing to create the paddocks outside the barn and trying to build the hay shed.

That spring was so wet the main post holes that had been dug for the hay shed sat filled with water week after week. I remember thinking the pole shed might never happen.

It pains my brain to think about all that I DIDN’T know back then. Somehow we forged ahead to eventually get where we are today. It involved a lot of making things up as we went along. Looking back on it, I’m happy now for all the wild ideas we entertained back then.

Makes me wonder about what things I might not know today that in ten years could become our everyday.

Probably hovercrafts.

At the same time, it always feels presumptuous to assume I’ll be here in ten years.
