What struck me most was the tongue-wagging of the community members. It seems they didn’t realize their gossiping had such a profound affect on Farmer John. Actually, I don’t think most people realize gossiping has such profound affects on others. While many of us say we “don’t care” what others think about us we should. Once loose lips start speaking mean words, words of lies, lives are destroyed.
Wolf and I really liked the eccentricities of Farmer John. We could feel his glee in the silly outfits and the sadness of his debt and loss of his mother and farm. We’re glad to see he’s pulled it together and built a wonderful community based in Illinois.
And The Bug Song is awesome. So is the Farmer John song. Go check out Leslie Littlefield’s website.
A good sum up of what’s happening with the bees.
