Winter Skies and Fields

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



Winter skies and fields

In this part of Kentucky, our countryside is densely populated (from the viewpoint of someone who grew up in northern Nebraska.) This view gives an illusion of wide open spaces that really isn't the case here. There are homes immediately to the left and to the right of this photo.

I posted a photo of this same field and set of farm buildings last October when there were soybeans in the field (below).

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
