There's something comforting about the perfect symmetry of straight rows created by putting plow to topsoil. The lines stretch in every direction and in some areas in northern Illinois that's from horizon to horizon.
Like a quilter hard at work I imagine a farmer stitching the topsoil firmly to the earth's mantle. Just in case there's any wrinkle in the law of gravity this attachment will keep the whole planet firmly in place.
Yes, there's alot of quiet time to let your mind wander is such strange directions!
