Living in the country isn't like the city. Humanity invented cities. In nature things are shaped by other forces.
When we bought our Texas ranch, rather than trying to reinvent things we tried to coexist with what was already there.
The ranch has a lake and we think that there's things in the lake. Sometimes at night our dogs would start barking. Shapes could be seen near the lake. Just shapes.
I've wondered if they're lonely.
Since then we've moved. Our ranch is now a church summercamp.
I think that's good. There will be children for the things to befriend.
