Story #2: pH.7

Open fields, a sun in the blue sky and a cloud resembling the cool fourth Buddhist is floating over the owner of Peace Farms. He is tall, dark, and handsome and he is chewing something as he rides through the York University village. He is cool like you and he is me.

Wow! My breakfast on the bike was great. All 2 boiled eggs, 6 hashbrowns, 1 slice of cantaloupe, mango, apple, kiwi, and a glass of OJ.

Then, I rode north through the smoky village housing where a clean room is a grand. I made a left downhill past the Assiniboine condos. Went slow on the rocks and escaped to the paved parking lot. Then, I activated the strapped on motor and drove across the green acreage. Between a baseball field to the right and an aqueduct on the left which belongs to York University. I can see my plants, no deer, no stress and no fears! It would be 32 degrees Celsius today minus clouds, I had arrived at work ecologically and satiated. It was 6:30am and the grass was still wet. The morning dew on a brown recyclable cardboard laying on the ground looked like a sweating forehead or a chin, maybe.

As I did my stretches and meditation I was made aware of a hole in the fence as big as a deer! And I sat breathing cool. I measured it with my pink dynamic string which was 4 ft. long. All 4ft of the 4ft string fit perfectly in the tear. I rose to my feet and saw a small grey rabbit eating a carrot on my carrot bed. I took out my phone and spoke into the video recorder. “Something ripped the mesh and a rabbit is eating my carrots, “you thief stop!”

The End.
