When the dot-com bubble burst, the couple moved back to the East Coast. For the past 10 years, he's been working full time as an artist.

Poem at Leaning Pine Farm

Below is the untitled poem by Nina Forsythe that can be found on the side of Leaning Pine Farm:

The farmer is like an angel of the machinery of the earth -— its

muscle and gears, its pumps and balances — his feet deep in granite

rock beds, his head turned to the sun.

Cross the border and explore the topography of his country, the hidden

water table, the trade routes plied across the corrugated soil. No

passport needed.
