Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.
— Lemony Snicket said that

A beautiful shot of the cows around the hay. Love that bare tree, too.

At least all of those cows seem to love each other. A wonderful image.

Don’t wake me up with a feeling like that!

This is a very vintage looking image, like something taken with a hand sensitized glass negative.

Surely if you can wake somebody up you are not alone. However if you get in the habit of doing it, you pretty soon will be 🙂

What a bleak perspective your words imply. I like how the cows are gathered together in close comfort.

A beautiful composition with the lonely tree in the background, also a fine position of the horizon.

After reading the Lemony Snicket quote, Sherri, I suddenly want to laugh uproariously and watch “A Series of Unfortunate Events” again. Thanks for the memory! 🙂

Lemony summed it up perfectly in that last sentence! That tree has a stately presence in this landscape!
