Born a Farmer

This photograph is of an old farmer who sleeps in the same room his own grandfather was born in. Locking the same door his father put in years ago. One thing Louis told me that keeps on ringing in my head is, "God put me on this earth to be a farmer, and I will continue to be one until he takes me off."
