Ask Udder Smith: Respect for Age Day
Udder would like to take this week, with Monday a Japanese celebration of respect for the aged, and Thursday the Autumn Equinox, to respect our wise bovine elders, entering into their autumnal years of prudence:
For your patient acceptance of passing time, your grazing observations;
For your generous spirit of giving and nourishment;
For your sturdy calm in the face of life’s cowlamities;
For your falling, fleeting beauty;
Thank you, my revered ones, for your wisdom and guidance.
