I'm lucky to work over the road from Vauxhall City Farm, and I pop over in my lunch break whenever I can.
Watching the ducks and the calm sheep is the perfect antidote to the hectic nature of work.
I always think of Walt Whitman:
“I think I could turn and live with the animals, they are so placid and self contained; I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition; They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins; They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God; Not one is dissatisfied-not one is demented with the mania of owning things; Not one kneels to another, nor his kind that lived thousands of years ago; Not one is responsible or industrious over the whole earth.”
