a few beans...
it's getting light later these days and i was out early enough to catch a late setting moon over the bean field...the signs of autumn from foliage dying back to ripening poke weed berries are everywhere ( not that odd when you consider fall is only four days away...we'll see if it is a long transition like last year was )...as i wandered into the field proper i was, at times, difficult to determine where the berm ended and the beans began...looking south the rows are still fairly well defined despite the barnyard grass, thistle, ragweed, goldenrod, and that one blade of fox tail...turning back to the north the beans disappear into an invasion of local species that seem to have, in places, almost completely choked out the beans...can the harvester discern between ragweed and soy beans? presuming yes..if not the harvest on at least one side of the field will be difficult.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
