Today was farm day. I love farm day, not so much for the nearly hour long drive with five fussing kids in the back, but for the scenery. There is something about winding country roads, green rolling hills, cows and horses and lush trees that calms my soul.
Even when I lived on Long Island growing up, I used to always head east when I needed to clear my head, east towards the farms and the quieter small towns. There is just something about the lack of clutter, the space between houses and the wide open breathable air that makes me feel comfortable. Someday soon I hope to have that ride, down the windy treelined roads, past the fields, to my home where I will look out the door and just see nature.
