She had a farm, and on that farm she had different animals. Can you imagine what my life looked like when there was neither computers, the Internet, nor anything else to do with the so popular today virtual world. I woke up to birds' songs, had breakfast together with other family members and went out to play or do things outdoors. Wonderful! Most of the day I spent alfresco... wandering about the place and occasionally thinking up crazy activities or just helping either my granny or her son Peter :) I saw many times how my granny was milking her cows but once she asked me to try myself... And then... I had to touch - with my own hands what you see in the picture, i.e.
Nowadays, many children would either think it's disgusting, appalling or a totally unattractive activity. Besides, why should anybody do it if milking cows is already automatic. Still, I remember this feeling of being so close to an animal and trying to milk a cow. Since then I have never had a similar opportunity but I do cherish that moment a lot. Now matter how technologically advanced this world is, such simple things as milking a cow can be an unforgettable experience.
To my mind this world is going too fast and it's going so e-lectronic and virtual that we rarely experience such moments as the one mentioned here. Shouldn't we perhaps slow down a bit and look around to appreciate the beauty of the surrounding world?
