They say if the cows are lying down then it’s going to rain. Given how much of the wet stuff we’ve had of late, I was glad to see this chap standing up. His bovine fellows were lying down, but this guy was a non-conformist. Fed-up with the mud and the wet he was taking a stand. He was representing what it means to stand up and be noticed. He was carpe diem. He was metaphor cow.
My day carried on along a similar theme. I was advised to keep off the tracks, or rather find my own path, before being presented with a view of the sunshine over the other side of that dam wall.
We could all learn something from our friend in the field. Sometimes we need to stand up and be seen as well as being herd.
