The chicken seem content. I was reminded of an event this summer.
I got Chiggers or swimmers itch. It happened at my "private" lake. Private because no one goes there, they call it a "mud hole". Little do they know.
Any way, it is spring fed pristine water, wild life abounds, and no fish. There are four species on the endangered list present, it is my little
My place to go when RL is tumultuous. I swim every day during summer.
Well Chiggers can only live in clean water because their main host demands is, and they need water fowl, preferably Greebs, which moved in last year,
much to my joy, or so I thought.
I noticed mid-season an "itch" and miniscule bumps, I couldn't determine the source of, it continued but I wrote it off, tried to ignore it.
But one fine very warm day I was floating around and when I emerged from the water I knew something was off. I was in a frenzy with the itch. I
hurried home, showered and looked up my symptoms. Chiggers.
I shouldn't have ignored the early warning signs, it became weeks of infested boils, pain and scars.
One should never ignore warning signs that life puts forward, the damage can be long lasting.
Tending to my chicken, thinking about how life speaks to us.
Uhh I found this for The Coop the other day.
