Organizing around here and some items become unearthed. These materials clearly date to the time when we had to put up a garden to fence to keep baby Anna from tumbling down the slope and stairs. A time when Sam was really into assembling scraps. Brown paper, a piece of fencing, red thread and plastic packing ties. And a very careful needle. That fence came down a year ago, and it has been a long while since Sam made objects like this. The artifact so precisely and elegantly dates itself and I love it so.
