Living across Windfield’s Farm, and actually on old farm land, has one thing going for it for sure…and it is nature. There is nature all around me, essentially…with a [horse] farm across from me, rolling hills down the street, birds (ok…ravens/crows) flying from tree to tree, plenty of flies (horse flies?) and…mice.
We’ve caught a few in the garage already, and then I issued a thought to my mom:
How do you feel when you see the mice caught?
And she responded:
When I saw them, I felt somewhat guilty. I mean, it makes me feel like one of those early-American settlers invading the land and taking it away from the Natives. This is basically what we’re doing…living on land we’ve taken from the them (the mice).
