In just two weeks I sifted through the contents of the barn. Before going to Nova Scotia I hoped that studying nature would somehow transport me beyond ordinary concerns. Now, digging through the piles in the barn, I was happy, deep in the stuff of daily living. From a clump of rusting gears, tools, tin cans, and old tea kettles, I removed a black glue pot and a crimping iron with "Geneva Hand Fluter" stamped on it and packed them in a box to take home to use as doorstops.
