"What is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? It's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's goodbye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."
-Jack Kerouac

Today I would like to give some insight on an important aspect of farm life: farmer's brain. 

Farmer's brain is a common term used on the farm to describe when a farmer goes off the deep end, whether it be due to too much sun exposure, excessive farming, or really just about anything. Now on Sunday, after a long day of harvesting, we capped it all off with a huge sunflower harvest. And when I say huge, I mean astronomical. I'm talking a million sunflowers. Literally. We are really good at growing sunflowers. 

 
 
Last weekend marked the third and final installment of my Weekend Crazies. After work, I took off immediately to catch a bus to Skidmore College to visit my little hobbit friend, Jill (she's short) and Rachel - both from HMI. After surviving 3 bus transfers and a taxi ride, I finally arrived at the Skidmore campus at 1 AM, a little tired, a little worn, but otherwise unscathed.
