I've grown to love these sweet solemn faces.
I've grown to find comfort in our daily meeting....and greeting.
I've grown to know their patterns...their habits....their routines.
Today - they collected themselves in the shade of the barn.
Two years ago - my landscape changed.
And - here they stand. Strong and still.
I look for them. They look for me.
I'd say we're friends.
How lucky I am.

I'll be away from this space in these next couple of weeks while moving house and home.
Looking forward to returning...grounding down...and beginning.
