Wound a Bit Tightly

This morning I am reminded of building temporary electric fencing around the hay fields last fall.  The fencing would allow animals to graze, during the winter months, any field growth occurring after our last cutting of hay.  What I remember best is tying the insulators to the corner posts.  The tying brought me back to a childhood moment when I learned that even if you build a fence that no one will ever see, your work is your work and it tells something about who you are.  Few if any folk will ever notice the tie around the insulator is wrapped tight, but I have an idea a few of those men who watched and commented on my childhood work and are long gone, will.
