recently i went out to visit a lovely friend who used to model for us. she's since moved to my town with her husband and 3 little girls. they've been running a dairy farm along with raising sheep and chickens. the place is vast, green and so beautiful it makes my heart hurt. the day i saw her we'd just finished a few days of intense rain so everything was growing like mad. the sky was filled with little clouds. the ground was soggy. we walked out to see the dairy cows. a few were young, like this guy. one was heavy and pregnant. they were all gorgeous what can i say. i can't believe how soft and pretty their coats are. the girls held my hands while we walked back to the house through the grass and i could feel my skin tingle. i left with a dozen eggs in different colors - blue, white, brown, speckled. i want one of those arcana who lay the blue eggs . . .
