Taking Apart a House

Photo by George Foote

We arrived in the snow to take apart a house. She had lived there and one other home for her entire adult life, seventy some odd years, and in that time had gathered many, many things: Books, china, glassware, trinkets of all sizes, thousands of pictures. We came to cast lots and divvy up these things. Pack them up. Ship them home. Discard what remained.
