Gathering. Well, it’s one of my favorite things. A sweet meditative time with the good company of Edgar Rice Burro and the rest of my herd. Manure is the physical confirmation of everyone’s health; it’s the still time that my eyes run each body for injuries. Not to mention, it’s my greatest mental luxury. I swear, I have no idea how other people “gather” their thoughts. All these things just seem to come together for me when I have a fork in my hand.
You know, it’s amazing… When I started doing these photo challenges, with the self-imposed stipulation that they all be about my little farm, I thought it would be hard. I assumed that WordPress had an upscale urban mentality that would be at total odds with my barn world.
Wait. Gathering: That is the gentrified city-word for mucking. I’ve got that right, don’t I?

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)
