Childhood Memories They Can Touch

A Missouri man spent childhood summers with his three sisters on their grandfather’s farm, in a log cabin built a century earlier. The farm was no longer in the family but the man’s wife had retrieved pieces of the cabin’s oak logs, scarred with worm tracings and knotholes. She wanted four pens, one for each sibling, and sent them as Christmas gifts with a sketch of the farm. The memory of that log cabin will live through those pens for many generations.
