This is not a day to be spent in boredom. On a morning like this, every simple action is rewarding. The succulent divinity of my hay makes my tastebuds sing; the exfoliating abrasion of the grains of sand under my back make rolling almost addictively pleasurable. I will roll again.

Brahms' Double Concerto in D minor
3/8" Minus Gravel plus Fines
Orchard Grass Hay
Black Oil Sunflower Seeds
Freddie Mercury's Falsetto
