To me (depending on the day) the wheelbarrow sitting in the rain can be anything from simply sanctified to anchoring the entire universe. I guess that is the beauty of art. One sees one thing, another something else, another nothing at all. Thanks for reading it and sharing your reaction.

I have always loved this one.
