The sheepmen are beginning to take their flocks up to the mountain. The cycles of life in our little valley are still tied to the land, from the persistant school year tied to the agricultural seasons, to the herds and flocks being moved around from winter to spring to summer pastures.
It reminds one of the persistance of life and of its way of swinging along in a grand motion, with the seasons turning and the stars changing in the night sky. Life changes, and along with life, so do we.
Each day can bring imperceptable or obvious change just as the earth's seasons and upheavals can bring slow or sudden change.
It's good to see the sheep on the roads, I'm glad they still move with the seasons.
