I don’t always take the time to read long journal-like posts in my reader. The net is geared for bite-sized chunks of information and often succumb to this tendency. Every once in a while however I stop to smell the roses and enjoy a well-written enjoyable post about someone’s experience on a farm like Crane Dance. I soaked in the time spent with animals who were more like characters in a novel and felt that good feeling of exhaustion at the end of a hard day’s work. It was nice to imagine for a moment that I wasn’t sitting in front of a computer screen, but instead out in the farm trying to push and entice cows into a trailer. Thanks Ethicurean!
