With so much of the glass broken out of the windows and the roof leaking the sun is setting on the old mill building. If there is one thing I know as a farmer, it is this natural law: Nature laughs last. Left to the natural coarse of time, things decay to be remade again. Sure, we can delay or even reverse the inevitable for a time, but sooner or later nature will prevail. I was reminded of this when I saw the leaves strewn across the floor.
