Coming home from “work” is such a pleasure when you are surrounded by nature.
You’ve been out in the paddock in the sun, listening to the cows licking the molasses drum and the galahs and other birds squawking, looking at plants, discovering new excitements (like the skin of a brown snake) and enjoying doing your “work”. Thinking about what needs to be healed as you scan the degraded areas.
Then, as you get on your quad to go home at sunset, you are surrounded by beauty. No cars, no traffic jams, no pollution, no queues, no noise (except the quad), no grumpy faces to look at, no traffic lights, no asphalt, no “that’s your side of the road”, no litter, no exhaust fumes, no timetables, no time pressures…….. just the track (or one you make up through the meter tall grass watching for holes), grass, trees, animals (cows, roos (kangaroos), insects, birds), nature glowing and sky, sky, sky……..
Everything is smiling at me – including my life.
Working in the country sure has its advantages.
