love is….

DSC00357

I’ve lived all my life without ever having felt such an immediate connection

I knew that there was a horse in the paddock

his beauty I could see when we drove in

however, my focus was on the man raking the leaves

he was who we had come up the drive to see

when I disembarked from the truck

2 mature and protective great danes came to  greet me

although strangers, we all got along

the visit went with ease

when I turned to leave,

for some unknown reason,

it was not to the truck I went

but to the compelling figure at the fence

our eyes met, and I felt a sudden rush of recognition

of what I knew not what,

only that this handsome beast

knew my name and was wanting me closer

we met, we touched, both wanted more

how is it that I’ve never had a desire before to connect with a horse

I didn’t want to go, but I had to leave

will that moment come again,

I don’t know, but the encounter,

the soft muzzle, warm breath and gentle nudge

is etched in my memory

it was a moment REALLY  lived….

a leap of faith

There is such beauty and grace

when a horse and rider

take flight and together

mount the challenge

and conquer the moment

the moment didn’t just happen

the rider and the horse

trained and trained

both were ready for the challenge

they both faced

and when the time came

they flew as one

that moment shared

that bond, that connection

once forged

is like the nature that surrounds us

it will flow and ebb

but it will never end

faith,

when one believes

new experiences

always open up

begin each day with faith

that all your experiences in life

will carry you through

whatever comes your way

vrijdag nu… Good morning!

amishWhen we have been in upper NY State, we often will see a lone Amish buggy making its way down the side of the highway towards its destination.  Cars are whizzing by, driver and horse are not oblivious to the automobiles, their noise and fumes, they simply just keep heading to where they are going appearing to be in their own space and time.  I never can pass without  thinking of how in many ways it would be nice to be sitting along side the driver on a dirt road with nothing but natural woodlands  and meadows on either side.  Instead of concrete,, the horses were making their way over well trod earth.  Day dreaming and reality.  What a pair. We need a daily dose of both.

Life is a balance of negatives and positives, often we find ourselves experiencing the emotions of life on one side of the coin or the other. When you turn the coin on its side, you can see that the side is slim and though you see the rim of the coin, you cannot see both side of the coin at the same time. When I found the following quote this morning, I knew it was  to be shared.  Is love and being in love different?  Are they  different states of BEING?

e90031fba300ed47db3f5204118a9000Look for the beauty around us, appreciate the good qualities  in others. We all have our moments of “ops did I really do/say that”  The ongoing challenge is to see happiness and positives in our daily lives.  We have to begin with being honest with our inner self… loving who we are, and where we are in life.  We are alive.. this is vrijdag, Friday… we have another day to be creative.. Life is ART. And best of all.. YOU are LOVED LOVED LOVED, we are ALL ONE in this glorious UNIVERSE… reach out and touch someone today… let your smile shine!
