The Farmer

This farmer real­izes that the rela­tion­ship with her work, like any good rela­tion­ship is, and should be, rec­i­p­ro­cal. That the work, the land, would not be as good with­out her com­mit­ment to it. And, in turn, it returns that com­mit­ment to her. And, because of her inti­macy with it, it returns that much more.

This. This pas­sion. This love for what we are born to do. What­ever that is for each of us. Like her, our days should be filled with it. Every moment. We should wake up each day inch­ing to get up to our necks in it. To be cov­ered with it. To be a part of it. To be inti­mate with it.
