 I pieced and basted Right of Way in a second floor bedroom space, in an old house facing railroad tracks. Trains would pass by once or twice a day, making the single-paned windows vibrate and shake, the whistle loud and persistent. The staggered rail fence blocks felt like the clack-clack of train wheels on the tracks as they rolled through town.
