A Farmer's Life
It is an amazing thing watching a newborn calf. It attempts to stand for the first time, wabbles, falls back down; but, doesn't give up. To see it strive for nurishment as it attempts and then succeeds to suck and becomes excited at the taste of warm milk is its own success story.
Watching a seed, or multitudes of seeds heave the soil as new plants emerge seeking light is a true mystery. Do they yearn? Imagine the creative genius behind that simple seed.
New mown grass and clover in the hay field doesn't stop while the hay is raked, baled, and hauled to the barn. There is new growth, the new crop pushing on. You see no pause, no respite. Work is never done; growth must be continuous.
Such is a Farmer's Life! It is the most gratifying of vocations. After long days, short nights, relief comes. It is in reflection, images, scattered thoughts. Then Work, then play like the young calf experiencing a new world.
You see, A FARMER'S LIFE IS ALWAYS A NEW WORLD, EVER CHANGING, EVER DEMANDING, AND ALWAYS NEW! :)
