I did some cowboying over the last few days. They say you cant take the farm from the boy and I assume that to be true, especially when you go to visit your rural roots. I was quickly put to work sorting out firewood and fixing fences and feeding an assortment of critters large and small. It felt good and right. I have half a mind to buy myself a farm. I enjoy the natural surroundings and clean country air. Theres tranquility beyond the sphere of pollution and noise found in the metro centers of the city infrastructure. The street lights and sodium phosphorus lamps smear the night sky with a greasy halo of artificial sunlight creating a perpetual haze of twilight, effectively rubbing out the ribbon of stars that wreath our skies. Its nice to know that something great still exists just outside the blight of civilization. The heavens still shine brightly on those who choose a simple life.
