Welcome to our blog, Baby Rafael story plus
and this post, farm life can be very hard
- Farm life can be very hard
Farms are very isolated places and to live in the farm is boring to say the least. Usually there is nobody you can talk to, so, life is very boring and lonely, this specially applies to the time when I was young, when there were no mobiles, or other ways of communication.
The first real job that I did in the farm was to look after a small flock of sheep and a couple of goats. we had to take to flock of sheep in the fields, so that they would eat whatever there was left in the field. Today these things are things of the past, so, I believe that younger generation is better off than we were. Anyhow, we don't know if the younger generation, only time could tell, say in fifty years time.
Farm life can be very hard
Dear readers, this
post is the continuation of our last post, my farm life views, where we were
telling you about, my farm life when I was very young, where we were lamenting
that nobody would appreciate us farmers, while we were working hard for
everybody else. Anyhow, we were saying in our last post, that people that live
in the farms live a very hard and lonely life; in the past farming was even
harder than it is today, because today even the farmers have lots of machines
that helps them farming, they are also a lot closer to the other communities
than they used to be, because they can travel easily from their farms to town,
they have their mobiles, and other electronic devices that helps them stay in
touch with the rest of the world; anyhow, we have to think that wherever you
are, and whatever you do life can be very hard sometime, when that happen we have
to try to overcome those difficulties the best way we can.
Having this view in
mind and having lived a rather hard life myself, I look at today world and
wonder when I see these young people struggling, while they are really living
in the middle of plenty, but then I realize that they do not see it that way,
so, they want you to believe that they are living a hard life, when in reality
they are not, if we compare it to the ways of life in the old times. Therefore,
I cannot help thinking that things in the world have changed a lot for the
better, therefore, I cast my mind back to the times when I was young, then I
wonder what is wrong with the youths today, why they do not see all the good
things around them that are available to them. I know that some of them do, but
a lot of them don't.
Having said that,
now it would be good if we could compare today life to the days when I was
young; So, let me tell you why life was harder when I was young, especially for
those youths that like myself ended in a disadvantaged position, we were working
in the farms when we were very young: not only we were in a disadvantaged
position then, and working just to earn a small living that consisted of just
plain but wholesome food and some clothing on our back, but what was hurting
most of us young would be farmers, it was the fact that we were not appreciated
from the rest of the town community, only because we were not as good as the
rest of the community with our communication skills, owing to the fact, that we
were busy working and living an isolated life in the farm, where complex
communication skills are not taught, because you don’t need them for farming,
and also we did not ware flashy garments to show off, when we went to town and
met the young town people, who seemed so clever well dressed and they knew
everything that there was to be known.
The reason that I
have been telling you all this stuff, is that, it explains better how I felt
then and how I feel even now, about my life in the farm in those days when I
was young, and I hope that there is no misunderstanding, that this was a hard
and boring life, I am writing this article today, because I would like to point
out to you, that my life experience in the farm of those days, has a very clear
meaning to anybody that happens to read my life story, even if it is only a
plain and boring life story that I am able to tell you here.
But I believe that there
is also another side of this life story, because what I have just said, makes
me reflect about what the elders of my time were telling me, which was in
effect that life was much harder when they were young. This attitude of those
elders makes me think and ask myself. Is this the ways that life looks like
when we get old? Or it is indeed that the way of life is changing for the
better today I wonder? Anyhow, I will continue to tell you my life story here
under, and you can decide for yourself, and also when you read my next few
posts, where I will continue to talk about my farm life experience.
This post is
becoming too long, so, see you in our next post. Let me tell you my farm life.
See you soon.
