Some friends are thinking about creating an artist colony not far from Asheville, NC and this past fall we traveled there to survey the property. Of interest was an old tobacco barn which appeared to be as solid as the day it was built. That building could be used for a multitude of purposes.
The other building nearby was a small house, which had been occupied not too many years ago. Not much was in there, but I did notice a chair, which had me thinking of the person who had lived there and what they might have been thinking while sitting in the midst of a place nobody visited.
