It’s already mid-August and I want to drink every last drop of summer I possibly can. This has been the hottest and most humid summer upstate New York has seen in a while. And one thing I definitely struggle with is living in the moment, I feel like I’ve always got some kind of obligation holding me back from enjoying something wonderful. It’s my nature to want to take a fraction of time and pause it long enough to gather my thoughts and take in the beauty around me. The things I love most I need a lot of time for them such as, my family, my relationship, and my farm. I wish it wasn’t as unacceptable to be open about it or to express that I require more time for that purpose. There’s this sense of competition amongst human beings such as: Who works harder? Who needs more rest? Oh you think you’ve got it bad? Take a look at my laundry list of responsibilities. How do we actually break away from those behaviors and just be.
I love long drives and I love being at peace in nature, especially by a body of water. I walked along this stream and took in all its beauty. I watched the sun light gleam onto the water, pour onto and through me. Then I took a drive down a road I had never been before and saw this incredible view of mountains and fields. Pasing a big cow farm, I stopped to take a picture of this particular cow because he looked so tranquil on top of his hill, and he looked directly at the camera.
