Dear Farm Journal,
Seeking silver lining in a cyclone can whirl fears to ambition. The liquid sunshine I’ve glimpsed in this thunderhead, has been the momentous execution of farm projects. It has blown me away how much more we can accomplish when neither of us goes “off farm”. All those trips to the store, appointments, and going to town for this or that really sap time and energy from a small operation. That being said, Rufus mentions needing a hair appointment almost daily at this point. He’s going to have to pull it back in a ponytail pretty soon because we’re moving forward at lightning speed. As the storm rages on, I’m continuing to look for the blue beyond the black. I also think his long fluffy hair looks cute.
