The Country Around You

Barn in mistNo city sounds. Farm sounds, maybe, but it's different. Relax. Look around you. Finally enough time to see the natural world and feel the rythmns of life in the country. The plants, the flowers, the animals, the vistas.

This is the land you pass overhead on a business flight.  Looking down it presents as a patchwork quilt of squares and circles, greens and browns. So disconnected up in the air.  So disconnected in the city. So connected on the land.

Breathe in the smell of fresh mown hay or newly worked earth.  It's richness is invigorating.  Take a hike. Wade in a creek. Relax and breathe out. The country is calling. Pay attention. It's that important!
