America in Oshawa

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).
