Sunday Snapshots: Raven in the 100-acre woods

woods6

Our landlord owns a 100-acre parcel of forest and fields just down the road. I don’t actually know the whole story behind it, but think it was purchased some time after the main property, with the house, was bought. While the 30 acres associated with the house is primarily fields, the 100 acres is mostly woods, with a few large meadows tossed in. My soul feels at ease there in a way that it doesn’t in the fields behind the house; the forest is where my heart is and I’ll always be more at home among the trees. I would like to pick our house up and move it over to that parcel so that I don’t have to walk down the road to visit. Raven and I went over yesterday, enjoying the warm autumn afternoon and the unexpected sunshine. Today we’re back to clouds and rain.
