Barley shaking in the wind conveys a feeling of freedom and a sense of being alive in the wide expanse of the world. W.B.Yeats said, "The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." Feeling the wind which shakes barley, I read inspiring poems, listen to wonderful music, and appreciate great art daily to sharpen my senses.
