I grew up around farms in my youth. And I desired to have one in my adulthood. I consider among my greatest achievements being able to milk a cow in less than 4 minutes. I worked at a variety of odd jobs including tech, entertainment, and writing before I found Agriculture. Ag seems to be sticking, I enjoy the hours, the pace, and the people. It seems to improve my writing to do something like swing an axe, a sledgehammer, or a scythe in between verbs. So, I will continue my rural journey in the writing, and in the pasture.
