  • Like a kiss, you can’t do it alone

    John Cheeves said, “I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss, you can’t do it alone.”  Life teaches us that we can’t accomplish important tasks by ourselves.  The same can be said for barn murals. Certainly, without the dedication and cooperation of many folks, we would not have been able to complete four barn murals along the Agricultural Heritage Trail in less than three years.
