If a picture really is worth a thousand words, then I don’t need to say too much today.
Maybe it’s my eyes, but taking the shade into account, I don’t think the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence. But obviously this cow in Bayeux, France, thought that it was, sticking her head through the barbed wire to get at it.
Which got me to thinking about human nature. We always seem to want what we do not have, no matter how good our present situation. There was a field of grass for the cow to eat; it all looked pretty good to me. Some of it, outside of this picture, was also in the shade. I would think that for the cow, sticking her head through a barbed wire fence carried with it a certain amount of risk, some possible pain – and for no real reward. Dare I say it was a stupid thing to do?
I laughed at the cow because it was a funny sight. I don’t laugh when I see people doing the same thing. I do hope most of us are smarter than that cow. Especially you.
