I am on the farm again! This time with the lovely cows. Glorious creatures resplendent in their black and white livery - and very friendly and nice too.

Creatures such as this have such an amazing grounding effect. Their very being seems to be connected to the earth.

I had a very sad experience here too - a lovely, beautiful creature- a calf (a veal as they called her) lay dying when Claude and I arrived. The calf had been dehydrating for three days when we got there and was past saving (in spite of Claude's tireless efforts to get her to drink) . But yet in death there is also life and the wonder of nature at work - beauty even. Even dead and motionless this little calf was still beautiful, still a thing of nature, a thing of beauty. A thing to be remembered, I shall not forget laying my hands on her and hoping that she would make it through - through to join the beautiful milkers that I so enjoyed taking pictures of.

Thank you little calf for making me think of life, of the earth and especially of beauty at a time of sadness. Of what we can learn. And of what we ought to cherish.

AlexandraPechabaden It was best for her that she didn't join the milk battery... It is too sad, farming, in a modern way.
