I pass by this pole (post) on my way to work. It makes me think of the person who spends time and energy thinking of ways to decorate the pole. I cannot see the house that belongs to this pole as it sits down in a hole and I've never witnessed the decorating process.
American Indians had their medicine shields or wampum belts to announce to strangers a bit about themselves or their journey in life. This Oregonian has her roadside pole/post.
