New: “Longstanding”

Living in a disposable world, where everything has an expiration date, and shelf life, I appreciate things that are well made and last a while. One of the aspects of rural structures…barns, old sheds, old homes, is that they were built to last. When I come across old barns in the countryside, many worn out and tired, they have a sense of craftsmanship about them…a quality in how they were built that has them still standing for decades, and even centuries. This one was in a small town up north, Canterbury, New Hampshire, and had been well maintained, over the years, and more so recently, and dated back to the early 1800s. But even if it had been neglected, like so many are, it’s likely it would still have been there, standing strong. “Longstanding” 24 x 24 o/c
