About five miles north of the Mason-Dixon line, just over the Preston County, WV border into Pennsylvania, is breathtaking farm country where we saw this house on a Sunday morning. We were leaving the borough of Markleysburg (pop. 12 or so) after having spent the weekend at a retreat. I saw this place, and turned the van around just for a photo. I love the incredible juxtaposition of the ochre into the red of the house. It reminded me of home - not my home, but home with a capital "H" - the Home where mom is waiting with pot roast and pie, and a warm couch for a Sunday nap. Posted by Picasa
