I have new friends.
Came to visit!
I got to play with his TAIL!
Loki LIKES ME!!!
YAY! Another FRIEND!
Here we are, the start of July — a time to me as a time of pleasure-
Next week will be the second cutting of the First field of alfalfa—the air will be full of that indescribable sweetness of green
We’ve been cutting brush…a tiny victory which has no truce—seems there are always ‘brush’ to trim 🙂
The corn is growing and growing—
Summer is such a favorite time of the year, for me
Time of heat, color, and joyful little birds
Moving on through the farm
The pastures are looking good, rich, green, lush
No way can I stand on the ditch like Terry…I would fall in!
Summer, when the sun starts moving back toward winter
But, everything else, myself included
Continues to dream-walk through the warmth, the heat, and the beauty of Summer
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
The sky has been just wonderful the last few days
The colors swirling and dancing as the sun rises and sets
Storms building up on a daily basis
Bringing thunder, lightning, and raindrops
Then the wind shifts the clouds moving them into swirls of patterns
So the light breaks through them and seems to actually shimmer
Sometimes cooling us down to a feeling like Fall is soon to happen.
Still the sky, the sun, the moon, the wind
All murmur in huge [brilliant] voices
Come outside and be with me
Let me fill your mind, and soul and all the shades of your heart
For the Time is swiftly passing.
From my heart to your world,
Joe Cooper wrote: I hope you are having a great evening.
I just took this.
(I then asked if I could publish this symbol of hope, which I needed so badly, and he said yes.)
Then he said something else, which brightened my day even more:
“I enjoy reading your blog, and I find it comforting and makes for a better day for me. So how could I not try to give back?
Gradually, gradually the day starts to wake…the shadows of the night slowly lifting as the gray light filters in.
Tiny, as my thumb, the hummingbirds arrive at the feeders; their buzz and chirps blending in with the small melodious calls of the other birds who are shaking sleep off and welcoming in the day!
Morning, the beautiful beginning of another day!
