Welcome to my little slice of heaven on the internet. This blog is of stories often told from the perspective of my many animals on my little homestead in Oregon, Wis, as well as short stories relating to the challenges of life in the 21st Century. Take moment for yourself and enjoy a little of the craziness that I call life. Emaho and off we go !!!

An Ode to Parth
Actually it is an "Ode on Intimations of Immortality" excerpt dedicated to our former ram, Parth, Shetland Sheep. Rest in peace sweat natured boy. May your next incarnation be free from pain and suffering and filled with green pastures.
Parth, Shetland Ram
There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;--
Turn wheresoever I may,
By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
