Alpaca and Carolyn making friends - photo by Jennifer Khoury Photography
Every. Single. Day. I crane my head when I pass a pasture. I slow way down when the sun is just setting over an open field of grass, just shy of perfection for lack of a few alpacas. I check my bank account, I do the math, how much is enough to make the big purchase? Like farm big, and barn big, and a house if it needs one, and at least two alpaces (cause they are herd animals and can not live alone), and a few Great Pyranese to protect the herd, and some new boot like these. Maybe another day, I conclude, after we've saved some more and possibly won the lottery. This is my simple dream, and I dream it daily.
