I live on a farm ... — hat patterns

A personal pilgrimage

Not long ago, one morning, I found myself standing in our kitchen looking out at our snow covered lawn across the street to our frozen river, it too covered with a gathering snow. I stood there in contemplation for a little while, considering my life as it is today and of course, the words came to me again, "I live on a farm." Those words, that thought, may seem of little significance to others. For me, they represent a something quite large and of great significance for which I will continue to feel and express gratitude ... over, and over,...

A week or two ago my mother passed along an email to me featuring a photo of some "snowballs" that strewn all across a snow covered field. I think the caption was something along the lines of the snow balls having been made by God. You could see tracks in the snow, where the balls of snow had rolled along and grown in size with the wind pushing them along. I had never heard of or seen spontaneous snow balls like that before. This week it has been quite cold here, with a couple of all-day snow showers. One morning...

The beginning to the new year has been a bit mixed ... but the entire year is bound to be mixed no matter whether the overall picture after the fact turns out to be success and joy or struggle and disappointment, there will be a mixture of everything if this year is anything like other years in my life. I hope it is like other years, because all of the years of the river of my life have carried along in their currents a mixture of experiences which all together form the status of my life at this time and...

Another holiday season has swept through, leaving in its wake warm and loving memories and a sweet lingering feeling of relaxation. Each year I learn new lessons in keeping the holidays in simpler and more humble manners. This is my personal effort to help keep the true spirit of the holidays alive for myself, my loved ones, and anyone whose life I might happen to touch in some way or other. I find I succeed in some ways, and fail in others but always my quest is to get it better than I have before, learn from my mistakes, discard...

Everything is coming alive; the feelings in the air and in the environment are exciting. Every day I look for signs of new flowers coming to life. I don't want to miss one moment, or one photo opportunity. I moved here last year in early May, and by then this place was live with blossoming trees and flowers everywhere. This year, I will capture the evolution with my camera and then my year will be complete. Sometimes at night the sounds of the peepers surrounding us everywhere keeps me awake for a time, but I enjoy the sound so much...
