Bancroft '05, Part 6/6

And so, the week­end had to come to an end. It was great to get away, and refresh­ing to hang out with some decent peo­ple. Adam most of all, who renews my ever wan­ing faith in human­i­ty every time I see him. I had a few songs in mind for the video, but the first song I thought of, and the one I even­tu­al­ly used, is by The Postal Service. Before I start­ed edit­ing, I could only recall the first few bars, but I knew that those notes would be able to per­fect­ly define the feel­ing I want­ed. Funny that it hap­pens to be named There’s Never Enough Time. There are so many things I could say, but the videos say it all.

One of the best things about the farm is that it’s a farm. There are the two large and loy­al dogs, Willow and Atka. There’s the chirpy house­cat, Femo, who likes to twist and turn her body for one to scratch. There are cows, who can jump real­ly high if fright­ened.

Aside from the ani­mals, there are all oth­er sorts of lit­tle things that make the farm rus­tic and dif­fer­en­ti­ate it from the city life I’m so used to liv­ing. It’s not every place that I’ll find ran­dom 12-guage shot­gun shells on a cab­i­net, or piles of fire­wood that are big­ger than my house. It real­ly makes me feel like I’m away; away from com­put­ers, school, work, or traf­fic.

I’ll end off with a shot of the inscrip­tion on Eric’s flask.

Here’s to them.
