I’m house sitting a mini farm for a few weeks. There are 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 fish and 13 chickens. It’s a beautiful place to be! The woman who lives here is an artist. At the entrance to her studio was this poem: The essence of life is to care, the secret of life is to dare, the adventure of life is to learn, the challenge of life is is to change, the joy of life is to love.
