well, hello there…
don’t you wonder what she’s thinking?
munching away. undeterred. unhindered. nothing to do but meet basic needs: food, water, mineral, shelter, and the company of other animals, preferably her own species. and some space to wander about. seriously, these are the for-real basic needs of a cow. sounds frighteningly similar to our own, right? food, water, shelter, company…space… pretty simple, isn’t it? why must we complicate it so? i wonder how much more peaceful life would be if we trimmed the excess. remembered to keep the main thing the main thing. if we had a little more time to wander…to wonder… if we had room to roam a little more free.
i’m taking some inspiration from this pretty lady today. to simplify. and just be.
