- a white house with a folly
Still Life. This old guy works at a level crossing and walks from the hut out to the gate and back when the trains are passing and also he walks to and from his house nearby where his wife sits making carpets.She also serves tea and cooks. She asks him for money for a new shawl and she asks him to ask the guys who bring the bread to get them some tea and sugar but he keeps forgetting. The son spends a night there at one point. The old guy gets a letter telling him that he's retired now and he doesn't know what to do. Very slow but very good.
