love seeing my granddaughters
riding while filled with a gentle spirit and mutual trust
love all the other grandies coming out
to see what they have been working on
love that they each have different things they love to do
karate, basketball, writing, swimming, cooking, reading, fantasy games,
swimming, horseback riding, drawing, helping people, flying, exploring,
floating, small business building, playing, celebrating
yet they all have the same tender spot for animals
while living life and learning.
“from horses we may learn not only about the horse itself
but also about animals in general,
indeed about ourselves and about life as a whole.”

this quote is found in children’s literature
but is a great reminder for all ages.
there are 1 year, 2 months, and a few days
left in this decade.
left. in. this. decade.
take that risk.

a carload and more of grandies,
a sweet niece, baron the dog, and a family of ducklings
inventing the day as they go.
“some of the secret joys of living
are not found by rushing from point A to point B,
but by inventing some imaginary letters along the way. “
~douglas pagels: These Are the Gifts I’d Like to Give to You
“we have so much time and so little to do.
strike that, reverse it.”
