All that remains






A crisp fall morning...a weed-covered field among the 1960's ranch houses...an old homestead...with a barn and an aging farmhouse...an orchard that held on to the end...its inhabitants now gone...the remainders for sale...















an old ledger...weighing in at 15 pounds...recording daily transactions...outlines a much simpler time...






































the beginning pages bear witness to a life in 1920...and then fade away...
left blank...unanswered questions to what transpired...


















































the kraft envelope was discovered, tucked among the pages...
the rusted scissors and jute twine, additional found treasures...
