Time Renewal

"You catch the present moment without words or thought. Few things are easier to describe and harder to do. The crux of the matter is time. .... Most of us take for granted that time flies, meaning that it passes too quickly. But in the mindful state, time don’t really pass at all. There is only a single instant of time that keeps renewing itself over and over with infinite variety. "
  
Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets


Animals know and live this concept of time being an illusion. Spending time in the company of various animals everyday allows me to glimpse it now and then too and shapes the world I see and live in. 

There are 300 lambs on the ground now. We’re almost through lambing. We’re still drifting animals forward however now the front bunch (those who have not lambed) is a small group and the dropped bunch (those with lambs) is large. Our moves are less frequent now, happening every second or third day.  Moving the ewes with lambs is a pretty large event now.

(Notice the fourth ewe in line; how full she is. She's remarkable - her fondness for eating is second to none. I'll get some photos of her to share with you).
