The persistence of pencils

So fellow travelers,  lots of photos and posts on the b.b.c. pages about this past weekend’s Open House at Bedlam Farm.  One caught my eye. Indeed,  I saw the pencil can Jon Katz refers to. It was at that moment sitting by a tree.

It stopped me in my tracks.

I lowered my camera,

because it made me  realize

two days earlier I really had said goodbye to one of my favorite students.

She left behind a pencil can of her own.

The persistence of pencils  

 

Five years of  colorful memories

Catch phrases

Disney quotes

Words written in margins

Hidden feelings revealed

and pencils

so many, many pencils.
