Round Barn

_DSC9142I’ve been to the Hancock Shaker village before. And to my surprise we did not see everything… then and now. But after the most recent visit I came away having seen more than in previous visits.

I was lucky enough to strike up a conversation with Ted, who kindly imparted a crash course on making Shaker boxes. I’m educated and hope to start making boxes soon. It was a random act of kindness on Ted’s part. He saw I was interested. He gave me an A-Z lesson with tips that I will try to remember and carry on. The trip? It was a spontaneous 90 degree turn in our itinerary. Typical, unexpected, fruitful, interesting… some of the best things are found and discovered. I’m not too big on planning.
