Rare Rain

Rare rain

This has been the summer of the drought in Southern Ontario. Hot, dry and, on some days, unbearably humid.

Finally, last week, the skies opened and a deluge of wet relief blanketed our region.

The horses, happy with this change of fortune, gladly presented their backs to Mother Nature’s refreshing and nourishing summer storm.

I don’t know that I’ve ever smiled so much to see, and experience, the rain.

Thanks for visiting …

Fun at Niagara

Niagara Fun

The meaning of fun is open to interpretation, of course.

While I’m sure tourists aboard the Maid of the Mist have a whale of a time sailing into the mouth of the Horseshoe Falls at Niagara, Ontario, my fun is experienced observing from a safe distance while attempting to capture a memorable moment.

Thanks for visiting …

Tunnel Vision

 

~*~

As long as we judge the world from the narrow perspective of our past, particularly negative, experiences we will never be able to engage with the light of new, life-affirming  possibilities.

To move beyond our tunnel vision is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.

Thanks for visiting,

Equine Landscape

Wither

The beauty of the horse is the sum of its many divinely orchestrated parts.

This mountain of wither connects the hills and valleys of shoulder, neck and back through the notched ridge of the spine. An emerging winter coat textures the hillside while wisps of salt and pepper mane garland the mountain face like a protective cloak.

Just one detailed section of the exquisite equine landscape.

Thanks for visiting …
