An Incurable Affinity for the Dairy Cow

Farming requires fidelity.

I find that if my attention is elsewhere, things don’t go as smoothly.

I appreciate that about farming. If you can practice giving your full attention to it, it gets to know you.  It responds to you. You become of part of that small world.

For me, I can feel a shift in my being: my breath deepens, my face relaxes, and I smile a little bit.

The cows can sense it. They approach me. They suggest I get some perspective. They remind me to love bigger.
