Monarch and Kansas Sunflower

You know the old saying: You can't go home again. It's kinda true, but not really.

Things might well be much different. But if you enjoy change and believe that rust and erosion have their places in life's scheme... go home and enjoy it.

It had been a full 25 years since I visited that old farm on the Pioneer Road.

The house was gone; the shed had collapsed; and the pasture that had been native grass and buffalo wallows was now marshland and cattails.

So it was nice to see a Monarch on the sunflower, hear the meadowlark's call and trace with my finger the fossils in a limestone fence post.

Some things don't change.
