i've spied this old cabin for years sitting out in a field. i finally decided 'what the heck', and went down the dirt road to take a look, even though it's on private property. there was a 'for sale' sign, so i figured it was okay.
this sharecroppers cabin is so classic, and so in a southerners' d.n.a. , it tore at my heart. there's just two rooms that share a fireplace. one room for cooking and living, one room for sleeping. there would have been an outhouse. no sign of plumbing or electricity. it used to have granite stairs that have since fallen down. inside, the walls and ceilings were whitewashed to brighten it up. deserted long ago, it's gradually becoming one with the field it sits in, like an old tree, existing silently.
