How wonderfully tranquil...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Tom, I can picture it myself: so serene; a lovely place to "visit". And given the stresses of your chosen occupation, I would think you need to "visit" often.

As you can see, I've taken the liberty of including a snapshot with your post. If you'd like it replaced with one of your own, one that more accurately reflects what you've described, by all means send it through another submission and I'll be sure to substitute it for you.

Thank you for sharing how you find the lighter side for yourself.

I love the picture you chose. The glow of the sunset adds an element of tranquility. Thank you for printing "Back to the Farm" and including the picture. I could not have chosen a better one.
