Up in the high hills of North Chittenden, Vermont,
some of the most beautiful land on earth is still farmed.
I was struck by the fact that the clouds were lower than the trees.
Afternoon waned as the clouds dipped below the horizon,
leaving me in a strange poignant state —
saddened and uplifted at the same moment.
