The school I worked at has chickens and a garden as outdoor classrooms for the youngest learners. I talked with the chickens on Friday, as a final stop before heading into retirement. The chickens made it clear: "No long 'goodbyes.' Just take your leave, and start your new life". I took their advice. Of course, a guy who takes advice from chickens needs to retire!
Stuff I think about while riding my bicycle, trail running, hiking, or having an adventure with good friends.
