phunctum #plainpeople #antiquephoto "She hung her laundry in the morning
before light and often in winter
by sunrise the sheets were ice.
They swung all day on the line,
creaking, never a flutter.
At dusk I’d watch her lift each one
like a field, the stretches of white
she carried easily as a dream
to the house where she bent and folded
and stacked the flat squares.
I never doubted they thawed
perfectly dry, crisp,
the corners like thorn." - Janet Kauffman, Mennonite Farm Wife

  •   beckhint Great! 1d
  •   phunctum You know it, @sojournerlori! This poem reminded me of when my (first) mother in law had a sudden heart attack on Christmas Eve years ago. We went to her house the next day to gather some things to take to the hospital & her clothes were on the line, frozen stiff as boards. We brought them in & stood them in the tub to thaw. 1d

nybuffymeister Holmes County and surrounding areas, south of Cleveland, Ohio, have the largest concentration of Amish, in United States, upwards of 40,000. ........Both here and Lancaster County, Pa. are places to visit for a glimpse into a much earlier time.
Amish are renown for self-sufficiency as hard working farmers and furniture makers. They are family oriented, conservatively religious, people of the earth. ......Their fundamentalism keeps interactions with the 'world' to a minimum, as well as avoiding modern conveniences such as autos, phones, and electrical appliances.
The Ohio land they have been attracted to is gentle, rolling and rich for planting and animal husbandry.
When in the area, you will notice most of the primary roads have a specified lane, to the right and left shoulder, designed for the many Amish black buggies seen.
The farms are prosperous looking, scrubbed clean and white, in appearance, using horse-drawn wagons and carts, for basic transportation and farm utilization .....Overall, the effect on the visitor, is often one of tranquility, from a peaceful and charming pastoral setting, unlikely to be found anywhere else in the country.
