It is always amazing to me the things that get left behind. Things once treasured, once toiled for, once built up and carried on. And then left. Doors locked, or maybe not. Left to be reclaimed by the earth, by the weeds, by the birds and the bugs.

And how there is a beauty in these things, decaying into the ground, swallowed by the reeds, returning from whence they came. A stillness, a subtlety, a quiet dawning of nothing more.
