The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord...Psalms 33: 5

A cornfield in its golden stage
As it is waiting to be combined,
Brings benefit to olden age
To complete the job assigned...
Poetry by me AJP

Yesterday while I was doing some self portraits for the theme on "selfies" I looked around for good backgrounds and knelt in the tall weeds on the edge of the cornfield. ...I almost got swallowed up by the towering weeds, however. No harm done, I got untangled eventually:)

A farmer plants corn on this field that he rents from land developers. I love it especially when the corn gets to this stage of its growth...We have the benefit of seeing it across from our driveway and can watch its progress.

    I remember seeing that cornfield in 2009 when I first joined JPG. Andrea, you could collect and publish your photos and themes and poems about the contentment that comes from life's simple pleasures.

    In a sense my work is collected here on my site Richard...In the years before computers and
    digital technology that would never have been possible. My pleasures in life are simple and
    that's where I get my contentment...
