Out to pasture

Quite literally. I retired effective 12/20/19. As many of you know, I spent a lot of my childhood on and around the family farm. My first college degree was in Agriculture. My brother and I still co-own and manage farmland near Millersport, Ohio. So, when I talk about being put out to pasture, I mean that literally. Now that I have closed my chiropractic office, I intend to spend more time around the family farm; some of which is pasture, some of which is woodland, and some of which is crop land. It was love and respect for nature that drew me to both farming and to chiropractic. I still hold a deep, abiding faith in the wisdom and power of nature to heal, if we would be more attentive to it and, more often than not, just get out of the way. In that regard I intend to spend a lot more time listening to nature, watching it’s rhythms and moods. I invite you to do that same. Find time and opportunities to sit with your back against a tree, walk the wooded paths and listen with full focus, eyes closed, to the chorus of nature’s voices as far from the cacophony of human activity as possible. Until we meet again…
