Last night I rode Wit on the trails behind the stable. It was a chilly evening but the sun was bright, and the remaining leaves were brilliantly illuminated. There was a corn field beyond our trail, and even the dry stalks seemed to glow in the late day sun. Smelling the damp earth and hearing hooves on rocks brought back deep emotions, and I was filled with peace and joy.
My incentive to remain disciplined with my book project is powerful. I know what I need to do to achieve my goal of having a horse so that I can feel that connection. Again.
