Happy Birthday America, Belated
Witness "The Farm", one of my all time favorite places to kick up my feet and truly unwind. Ethan was at Grandma and Grandpa's, giving mom some much needed time off with dad and close friends. We missed you Anne!
The drive from our home to the farm is a beautiful one, but not for the rider who easily becomes car sick. This region is part of the Appalchian foothills, there are steep, winding hills and it's surprisingly rugged terrain for Ohio. We snapped these pictures from the car, they're not great pics, but you get the idea. I felt an oddly comforting feeling by seeing these horses and an Amish farmer doing their work. Our society is so modern (us with our laptops, digital camera, and cochlear implants), that catching an occasional glimpse such as this helps trigger that feeling of connectedness to the Earth. It was sort of a perfect American moment actually.
