Sheep grazing near Donnington The Cotswolds, England Farmguy and I are in Gloucestershire, England this week. And, on our way to an art exhibit in a nearby village, we noticed this rather bucolic scene. So, we pulled over to visit with the sheep and capture the moment. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂 […]

Our hen, Barbara Green Hill Farm May 2018 I just love this photo of Barbara. The expression on her face really expresses her sweet and curious personality. “Gratitude bestows reverence, changing forever how we experience life and the world.” ~John Milton (1608-1674) Have a wonderful day!

Green Hill Farm Tuesday, March 13th We’ve enjoyed sunny days, blue skies, greening pastures, and daffodils over the last couple of weeks, and then…..it snowed four inches on Monday. But happily, most of it melted the next day. So, once again, we’re on our way to spring. Happy Thursday!
I’ve always loved the late actor James (Jimmy) Stewart. I probably first marveled at his talent in one of the many Alfred Hitchcock films in which he appeared. But, my favorite Jimmy Stewart film of all time is still the Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful life. Most people are familiar with Stewart’s work, but if you’re not, I hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful and moving tribute he wrote to his beloved dog, Beau.
As someone who has worked with children who have a diagnosis of autism, I was especially moved and inspired by Blake Henkel’s story. Blake is a young man from High Point, North Carolina. While he has limited communication due to an autism diagnosis, he expresses himself beautifully and powerfully through his artwork. Not only does Blake Henkel enjoy painting, but he is also a prolific and successful artist. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to listen to his story, appreciate his lovely, vibrant art…and be inspired. 🙂 See Henkel’s story in this edition of Roy’s Folks.
