When I was a little girl, I spent several weeks on my cousins farm in Indiana. It’s one of my best childhood memories. Horses, chickens, a million cats, dogs and a bunch of other farm animals. They had this feisty rooster that was up at the crack of dawn every morning doing that thing that roosters do. I would moan and groan until he stopped and then fall back asleep.
Even though I don’t share the early morning with the rooster, I still love them. I love the colored feathers, the way they walk, the crazy red thing on the top of their heads. I think they’re beautiful. They also remind me of that wonderful time on my cousins farm where life was simple and fun.
