The Barn Door: The Focus of Fall

Fall. I love those moments when I can turn off my head and just be in the moment, aware of the changing season around me, breathing in the chill, crisp air. I must practice doing that more often, and for longer periods of time.

I myself welcome a reminder that autumn isn’t about what we do during it. Fall just is. It is as natural and inevitable as the rise and setting of the sun. Let’s all just take the time to be still and look and listen as it spreads its beautiful season across the land and skies. Breathe in the whiff of burning leaves. Rustle through a pile of harvested corn stalks. Feast your eyes on the colors of the trees as they sway in the wind.

The Animals on New Life Old Farm

It’s hard to get any work done on my novel Bull by the Horns when my research leads me to such fun and interesting sites like this one.  This page makes me want to add more animals to the ones I’ve already created for my working farm/art colony/crime scene.

Here’s just a few of their residents.

Dixie

Elsie Gump

Tigger and Pooh
