The road and the farmhouse almost merge with the natural landscape. But the human homes are no less part of nature than the birds’ nests, the foxes’ dens, the soft hiding places of the deer and the bear that share our land. It’s a great reminder of living in harmony with nature, of which we are of course a part no less than our cousin earthlings of different species.
And then there’s that magnificent sky, with its clouds both protecting us and reminding us of how vast it is out there beyond our few acres of homes. I wonder if those clouds have some sort of transient group consciousness as they hover and travel above us and below the higher levels of our atmosphere?
Sometimes it’s just enough that they’re there, moving, breathing, delighting us.
