"Stuff is eaten by dogs, broken by family and friends, sanded down by the wind, frozen by the mountains, lost by the prairie, burnt off by the sun, washed away by the rain. So you are left with dogs, family, friends, sun, rain, wind, prairie and mountains. What more do you want?"

Also from the New York Times: annoying poor people are firing up their dirty old woodstoves. I'll give up my grimy old stove (80+ years-- the woman who sold me the house, in her seventies, said it was their only heat and cook stove when she was young, and not new) when the Times buys me a new one!
The stove, with nasty ash etc.
The remains of this year's wood pile and a start on the next's. Can't have too much wood; besides, new wood has to age.
