Flock, Feeding

Some days you feel like part of the flock, some days you don't.

My neighbor's sheep, enjoying a communal afternoon in the sun, happily munching away together.

Or nearly together, as the close of the video shows:

My sympathies and sensibilities are with the solo sheep, at least on a day like today. This day, as far as I'm concerned, that sheep has the right idea:

Put a little distance between you and the rest of the flock. Find a nice spot in the sun with something good to chew on. Dig in to the afternoon meal alone with your thoughts, no interruptions or questions or commentary, no competition for the tastiest tidbits. If somebody wants to talk, let them come to you.

Bon appetit!
