They were such perfect metaphors for the first day of this new autumn season.
Simple empty containers waiting to be filled with this past summer's harvest...readying themselves for a season of hibernation and rest. Open and ready to receive the bounty.....yet - prepared to give it all up and away.
Three hard-working farmers...waiting and wanting and wishing. Watching and seeing everything..while at the same time seeing and watching nothing at all.
The pause between the seasons. The in between. The moment after one is done...and before the other has actually begun.
