Enjoy these frames as I did taking photos of her!! She is a woman with a good heart. Follow her with my lenses from the side.
Each step of hers was purposely and steady as our life should be. And in front she has this wonderful crop of long beans. There are more growing on the bean stalks!!
The road is rough as our life's journey is rough.
Home is where the heart is as one poet wrote. At the end of the day she gets some rest and enjoy the fruit of her labour.
It was a warm evening with a brilliant sun. And making a short trip to visit her was indeed a rewarding thing to do.
Small farmers eek out a simple living out of the soil. They are green people and do not necessarily destroy our earth. Small farms are beautiful and safe. The world is surviving because of wise people who hold on to beliefs in returning to the basics and going small. Micro credit is in helping millions of women in South Asia to triumph over poverty. Small farms are in. Simple weekly markets even in London are in. People go for miles to search for the impeccable organic fruit. And for health reasons many even grow our own vegetables so that we are not eating pesticides.
And I hope that our community will continue to support safe farming and the small farmers.
Finally urbanites should spend more time in a farm away from the stresses of a city.
