At Riley’s Farm

Oak Glen is my point of refuge from office life and the concrete jungle, and is my go-to place when I need to see green, breathe in mountain air, pretend I live in the country. I took these photos at Riley’s Farm when Kat and I went berry pickin’ last weekend. While it’s common knowledge that farming is hard work with long hours, to an outsider like me, places like this trigger thoughts of simpler times. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    These places are so beguiling aren’t they: speaking to some inner yen for life to be more simple, less processed, fewer stages between the food production and the enjoyable consumption. Ah well. It’s good to look and imagine.

    I enjoy visits to places such as these for the same reason. I always imagine the people who live here being more attuned to nature than folks who live in the city.

    It is good to visit the countryside and dream of being a countryperson. It is just that weather isn’t always so pleasant but the work still has to be done. Sometimes the concrete jungle is not so bad…..theatres, cafes, concerts…..

      Yes, that’s quite true. A bit of both is rather nice, isn’t it?!

    Looks idyllic, but it’s a bit of a hike for me.

      My move to Orange County from Ventura County opened up a whole new world for me! Adding another hour to the 1 hour drive, changes things, no doubt.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
