In early morning light, with a town and craggy hills in the distance, a shepherd leans against a tree and plays his flute. Sheep are spilling out of their fold as another person holds open the gates. In the foreground is a contraption made of bent branches, perhaps for carrying a load between two pack animals. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
