Daily Farm Photo 12/20/06: Zen Donkey

Goodbye Autumn

I remember this day. The sheep were grazing in the hayfield, and Donkey Doodle Dandy
was right out there with them of course, but he wasn't eating. His head was up, and he stood gazing at the glorious autumn colors on the hillside. This went on for quite a while. It was as if he was in some deep meditative state, being one with nature if you will. Then I finally realized that he was probably asleep.

  1. Meditating, asleep, one with Nature. It's all about the same thing, isn't it?

  2. Awe Dan was enjoying himself in the sun!

  3. LOL! The way you worded this post cracked me up. Dan, at peace with himself, sheep, and nature...but he's asleep!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.
