An old rural mailbox at rest. The farmer has died and his wife is in a nursing home. The land is all rented out and the house is abandoned. The heartbeat of an entire farmyard slows, and then comes to a full stop. The final act is to tear out the mailbox and post from the driveway at the edge of a quiet country road.  It now sits alone, hidden from view, leaning up agains an old shed, full of memories of a hundred years of one families farm life.
