I feel as though the sound of the falling rain is a soothing backdrop to my thoughts, sometimes picking up in intensity, other times slacking off to gentle patter. It occurs to me that all of the creek creatures, Greg and I included, have slowed our pace and adapted to the wet day outside.

    All was not quite right with their world, but I knew that their new queen would climb from her cramped cell within a few days, and that as soon as her scent passed from bee to bee and all throughout the hive, that this colony's buzzing would contentedly reflect that all was once again well.

    There still seems to be so much that I do not know about this country life, and I wonder if I will live long enough to feel as though I have finally hit my stride.

    As Greg and I said our goodbyes and headed back down to the creek, it occurred to me that these suburban youths may well have cleaned up the chicken coop, moved rocks and brushed the winter coats off of the horses, but in reality they did ever so much more.

    This story not only starts without any beginning, I am also quite certain that it comes to a close without any end. It seems to go something like this.

    That first spring, I was amazed to find similar red budding trees growing everywhere, not peeking out from behind city houses, but majestically growing much taller and straighter along the edges of our farm fields. I thought that they were beautiful, decorating the early spring hills with a splash of color that contrasted perfectly with the new growing green.

    And it occurred to me that at that moment, I was the most fortunate person I could imagine. I had a house within which I could sit comfortably, surrounded by clean citrus-scented air, tilt my head back and see the whole outside world. I could not imagine needing or wanting anything else. I had it all right there.

    It is no easy task to leave the farm. The dogs need to be delivered to their doggish hotel across the river. We need to make sure that there are sufficient food supplies to last the duration of our departure for all of the hungry rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks, pigeons, horses and cattle.

    I love to watch the red-tailed hawks fly across the creek valley. Their light brown bellies glint beautifully in the sun as they fly. Their dark brown wings stretch four feet across, and as they turn and climb higher into the sky, I can see their fan-shaped namesake, red tails. Their scratchy call echoes among the hills and up and down the creek valley.

    It was a warm day, actually an amazingly warm day for the first of March. I felt quite comfortable in a short- sleeved shirt, and I was not even that surprised to see quite a few folks uptown wearing shorts and sandals as I ran my errands.
