the all-seeingeyeThe Object in Question: Lath House

This structure stands on a hilltop near the School of Art and Architecture at the University of Michigan. It has been there easily a dozen years. The hill was less overgrown when it was built, and the view better. Even so, it remains one of my favorite places to sit and write when the weather is nice. Some days it is the far end of a walk that starts at my office, goes through the arboretum, crosses the river and a soccer field.
