Happy?  by Mary & Larry

Where have we been? We bought land just because we wanted to, and now we discover there is a rave called hobby farms. Our daughter even gave us a magazine subscription with that name.

We also get Mother Earth News magazine. We read every helpful thing we can find on the web about organic gardening and farming. There are so many things we want to experience. Our minds go full throttle - even when it is time to sleep. We talk all 4 1/2 hours to the farm, and all 4 1/2 hours home. Are we happy?

The very first night we slept in our farmhouse, and another night soon after, I was nearly asleep and I heard myself saying, "I'm happy." Curious. I already considered myself as happy. I had everything that I ever thought important. In explaining it, I will say there were many happy events through the years, but the happiest year of my life was the first year we owned the farm.

How can I not be happy on the farm. I like quiet and there is lots of that. No barking dogs or traffic noise. One day I was tossing some rocks in a wheelbarrow, then stopped and realized I was making the only sound. So peaceful. On a cloudy night, it is so dark I can't see my hand in front of my face. By contrast, on a clear, moonlit night, the stars are so bright and beautiful, it brings tears to my eyes. No city light on any horizon. What more could I ask for, and yet there is much more on the farm to make me happy. I could easily just putter around there until I die. I'd be in hog-heaven.
