What You Don’t See

Whirld Works Farm

Here you can see the tumult in the sky above our farm after a good rain. You can see the side of the tractor shed that burned over the holidays. In the background you can see the forest and the barns. You can see the hay feild and you can see our house and new, detatched garage. But what you don’t see…

What you dont see is that yesterday when I arrived at home after a morning errand, my puppy was sleeping *with* my jack donkey, Boaz! Ofcourse as soon as I stopped the car to take a picture he got up and started coming towards me. But I can see it in my memory. What you don’t see are the wild flower seeds that are getting ready to sprout in fields. What you don’t see is all of the hard work it has taken to finish out the old garage and turn it into living space. What you don’t see is the trails that we have forged and marked, through our forest because we love to take walks back there.

What you don’t see are the stiff necks and sore muscles, the skinned knees and the bruises and scratches. But that’s all part of it.

You don’t see the dead animals, the ones we didn’t care for well enough, the dog fights, ehem and sometimes people fights. All of that happens here too. Just like at your home. Farm life is not for everyone, but I wouldn’t want to live this life anywhere else….well okay maybe the Talladega National Forest lol but…it gets too cold for me there;p
