When you see an old abandoned house collapsing in on itself, don't you wonder about the lives lived in there? How does a house just get left until it falls apart? I swear, when I drive by houses in this condition I almost drive off the road. I just cannot look away. Why were they left? Where did the owners go? And even though they have been abandoned, there is a dignity in the house's insistence on standing. Waiting for a return that will never come.
