despite their offside comments or questions, those twelve year olds learned a very valuable life lesson. they had the opportunity to take part in a gender identity and equality workshop. at first i thought the topic may be a bit too deep for them or difficult for them to understand and more importantly appreciate. but they got it, they sooooooo got it. we did a reflection after the workshop and i asked the students to sum up their learning in one phrase, they collectively decided that "hate is easy, love takes courage" was the best phrase to describe their learning and i couldnt agree more.

it pretty captured the essence of my daily happiness, rolling grass at the farm, sammy is sitting on my lap, you can see both mine and sammy's feet, nelly right at foot enjoying the sunshine, otis keeping watch in the distance and a little john deere action bc it wouldn't be a country shot without it right?
makes me smile.

I learned a valuable lesson from a good friend yesterday, "The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. It's when you stop giving a shit".
Clearly my problem is i still give a shit. so while i continue to give a shit, even though ive been told i really shouldnt, i have been wasting hours of life on PINTEREST. so many pretty things....like this shoe:
so while i sit here trying not to give a shit ima stare at the gorgeous peacock blue shoe and breathe deeply out and then in because in and then out is far too complicated.
