This is wonderful! Though I grew up on a farm in Western NY, I certainly connect with the feelings it evokes. We grew up encouraged to have the imagination and adventures available and I think I instilled that in my children...and am so happy when the include me in their "adventures"! I love your description..spot on! l/f

Captivating landscape. One can only wonder what she is imagining as she drags the sheet behind her.
