The Quiet Of Morning

Outside the open window The morning air is all awash with angels. Richard Wilbur Hello, Lovelies. Mornings here at the farm are a quiet affair.

“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people […]

Frost On The Flats!
