The Farm Is Just Fine

This massive oak fell during one of the horrific winter storms we had in February…

fallen oak   …but she had no idea she was down and sprouted her leaves with the spring.

 fallen oak hangs on

The hay fields are freshly cut…

      freshly cut hay fields

…and Sid’s flower is blooming from the sprig he shared 35 years ago.

Sid's flower

The clematis is full of herself,          clematis

while the morning mist awakens the wood shed.

Morning mist

The wood shed awakes

There isn’t a grocery store, restaurant, or boutique anywhere close…

…but the farm doesn’t miss a beat — she is just fine without the frills.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.
