While riding our bikes through the Heartland, we see lots (and lots!) of silos. For you city slickers who may not know what a silo is, they’re ginormous storage structures for silages and high-moisture grains used for livestock feeds.
[Discussion while bicycling]
“Len, you know that today, right now—this moment—is our life, right?”
“You know how those farmers are storing food for their livestock for the winter months?”
“Are you drinking it all in—tucking these memories into your heart like a treasure for this winter when it’s 40-degrees below and we can’t get outside?”
“Well, why not?”
“Because you’re taking dozens of photographs and will show them to me over and over again. I won’t possibly be able to forget!”
“Laurie, if you stop pedaling one more time we’re gonna have a domestic.”
As we came around a bend in the road we averted our eyes because right there on the side of the bike path was a farmland hussy—a topless silo!
Listen with your heart,
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
