Peace in a pasture

When you live in the midwest, you never take a warm autumn day for granted.

At least I don’t.

So I chose this Sunday to stop by a farm I’m very fond of to see some friends.

They immediately ran up the hill to greet me.

It was if I they had something to share.

So did I, but I spoke first.

“Hey friends, snow flurries are forecast for later this week!”

They took off in a tizzy, though still managed to share a couple of smiles.

As for me and their Newfie guard dog, we peacefully looked at the crimson and gold trees and sparking water below.

We weren’t going to waste even a minute with worry on this beautiful day.

“That’s what winter’s for, right?” I said to the Newfie.

I think he nodded in agreement.

He then very calmly nodded off.

And so did I.

  1. Hi Jackie –
    I enjoy your photos of sheep very much – and their guard dog. There’s something peaceful about sheep. Not sure why – maybe it’s calm acceptance of whatever is. But, regardless, your photos were lovely. Wonderful that you have this place not too far away to go to for a respite and a talk with animals.
    I admire the fact that you find something beautiful or poignant each and every day to photograph and/or write about and post for us to share. Thank you.
