What is it about windrows?

Pass by a field with windrows and one senses a feeling of peace and calm. Why? Even if you have never farmed or even visited a farm, there is something calming about those rows of hay.

Windrows offer a promise. A promise that you are prepared for what is to come. That despite the snow, sleet, or hail, all will be well. The barn becomes full of that sweet aroma of mixed grasses and whatever winter may bring, all is well. The field is ripe with harvest; the animals will be cared for; and, all is right with the world.

Perhaps the rows that follow and adjust to natures terrain serve as a lesson to us all. When we are in harmony with all of life, all that surrounds us, we can rest assured that all is well if we just take the time to stop and examine the peace that surrounds us all.
