Folks that have visited this week know that last weekend we visited the Slate Run Historic Farm. To close out the work week, here are a couple of shots of the ruler of one of the roosts at the farm.

Ruler of the Roost

In addition to looking cool, this guy liked chasing the other chickens around to make sure that they knew he was in charge:

I'm gonna get you!

These chickens were a lot of fun to watch.  It’s amazing what we can experience if we pause and sit quietly for a few minutes.  Whole worlds can open up when we stop and pay attention.

Living on a farm in the 1800’s would be a very different experience than what most of us experience in today’s world, and it’s a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of what it would’ve been like.  But for me, it’s the animals and the other sentient beings that I like the most about the farm. Taking the time to pause and share a few moments with these animals and get a glimpse into their world is one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had.  Perhaps it’s why we have dogs and cats in our home.  In fact, if I’m being completely honest, it’s the dogs and cat that are the rulers of our roost!

Have a great weekend!
