I've been feeling restless, inadequate, frustrated by my painting. So yesterday morning I took a walk. Usually it takes an hour, but yesterday I went the full circle for an hour and 15 minutes or so. This bird's nest was near the pond.
The fields are greening. I think this is alfalfa which a local farmer who owns many acres plants and cultivates as fodder for his cows. My parents also allow him to use their fields to plant alfalfa. They came by the other day to fertilize.
The pond is full after much rain. Interesting that no one who lives here ever got a little boat. I long to float on the pond, which is very small but lovely. I also ponder the fact that neither my parents nor my brother have named this farm. It probably had a name via the previous owner, but I think if I lived here permanently I'd be pretentious and give it a name and make a sign too.
Patterns along the roadside.
Ah, my meditation bench is still here. I replaced the top board which had blown off in the winter I guess. I don't know who made this bench but it is located about half way on my walk so I sit here and rest a bit and watch the water.
A four way crossroads. Hmm, which direction shall I go in?
