Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I may never be happy, but tonight I am content.

When one is so tired at the end of a day one must sleep, & at the next dawn there are more strawberry runners to set, & so one goes on living, near the earth. At times like this I’d call myself a fool to ask for more…”
