A Creamery Door

Elderslie Creamery Door

A door is what stands between two worlds separating them and uniting them. Practically a great invention, symbolically also a rich one.

I learned long ago that my wife is much more talented than I am so I have her do my layouts, which take her 15 or 20 minutes. Then I get to carve.

Carving is another way to exercise an act of attention and consideration for something. It does not take that long, but the product is something lively, something exciting.

The right side shows alfalfa, our prized legume on the plains and the main feed of our herd. The left shows thistle from which some of the coagulants used in cheese are extracted. The middle is a goat, who is rather necessary to the endeavor of operating a goat creamery.
