haiku for the day: envy

There are some great blogs out in blogworld. They offer insights into worlds I am not normally exposed to. They are real people writing about real lives. One of these blogs I follow is called “Almost farmgirl”. Charity’s posts there reveal how tough you have to be if you plan on being a farmer. And also how joyful the life can be. Her devotion to her animals, the life she leads, and the community she has created is an inspiration. Her pursuit of her dreams makes me believe that all of us have the stuff of dreams in us. And her love of the life she has chosen reminds me of the wonderful farmer poet Wendell Berry.

If I had a farm,
but I never will, you know.
My, how I miss it.
