"Pick your favorite" give-away
Leave your comment by January 24th, midnight. I have alerted The Puppet to get his special bucket out and he will be picking a winner this weekend! It was fun hearing all your comments!
This will be between you and me–there is no point in getting the barnyard involved, as it might hurt feelings. While my photographs of their daily lives might always show peace and tranquility, they are like any community-their are layers of feelings, greed for the extra feed, fear of the unknown...so why add to that.
So, if you've bought the book, or been gifted a copy-tell me which photograph you like the most. Leave your answer in the comment section below and one of you will get a free book, which you can gift it if you wish.
I love all of the photos-I chose them with an open heart and put a lot of time choosing them. They all can take me to a moment or place here on the farm. I will carry this book with me where ever I have to go in the future, to be able to step back here if needed. One of the joys of barnyard life, is having the privilege of walking behind the old goats that have lived here over the years. They waddle, limp and creek, but the view is so humorous, and sweet. I am constantly amused by the animals just being themselves. Lucky I am to have such scenery-and that is why I feel compelled to share it with you-as Joseph Campbell taught me years ago- the hunter that finds the jewel in the forest must bring it back to the village to become the hero. Now I am no hero, but I believe in sharing what gives me pleasure as it might bring someone joy or inspiration to go to their own forest and find their jewel.
