The Grass is Always Greener

     We have about 22 acres of pastureland on our property.  My husband Don fenced off about a quarter of an acre since we have a couple of fruit trees in that area.  He put an electric fence to keep the cows out.  Well, the calves found this place where the grass is chest high.  Then, their mothers followed them into the fenced area.

     I am always wondering why they need to get into this area when they have acres and acres to forage in on the ranch.  Perhaps it says a little about how we too often want what is fenced off and inaccessible to us.  There is no difference in the grass between the various locations and I suspect what is offlimits to us is also the same as what we can get our hands on.  Yet we are driven by desire and yearning.

     Then once we get what was offlimits, we learn that it's not such a big deal after all.  People are sometimes, crazy stupid.  The most important lesson to learn is to realize that we can be stupid and so should try to wise up to avoid total obtuseness.
