Aging is not for the faint of heart-nor for the quitters. When you get “up there,” some mornings you look at the obituaries, see a friend or loved one has passed and think “Well, I lasted longer than another one.” Or, you may find a certain sadness creep in that makes you wonder why them and not you. FarmGirl ruminates on what it means to age, but more important it looks at the world through the lens of experience-that nice way of saying many-perhaps too many-years of watching and wondering at the world. Sometimes witty, sometimes poignant, FarmGirl, like its predecessor, Rack and Wruin, will make you laugh but it will also make you think about the decisions we make in our lives and the consequences inherent in the outcomes. A mix of prose, poetry, and sundry musings, hopefully there is enough variety herein to make reading this book worthwhile. Thank you for giving it a go.
