Sunday Serenity: Visiting

~*~

Enjoyed an early morning visit and meditation with my friend, Wakita.

A lovely way to start a Sunday of serenity.

Wishing you a happy and peace-filled day.

Thanks for stopping by …

Sunday Serenity: Bear

Today I honour the memory of my beautiful horse, Bear, who succumbed to torsion colic November 21, 2017. He was 16 years old.

Bear changed my life in many profound ways and was the perfect mirror to my heart. We shared almost 12 years of growth and adventure, so his sudden departure was a life quake that altered my emotional landscape.

I celebrate his influence on my life by doing my best to live the lessons he taught ~ to be in the moment; to let go and let be, and that candy canes at Christmas are a good thing.

And so, I am reminded that in the day-to-day commotion of life it is important to live, to love, to learn and to laugh with those nearest and dearest to us. Life is too short for anything else.

Thanks for visiting …

No Fly Zone

Dust Storm

Flashback Friday …

Shakespeare had just been put outside, freshly bathed and sprayed with a specially formulated natural fly repellent, when he decided my efforts were just not good enough. Within moments of being released, and to my dismay, he dropped to the ground at his favourite rolling spot and gave himself a delicious dirt bath, creating his own no fly zone.

Look closely and you’ll see a toothy grin and an expression that seems to say, “Don’t worry, mom, I got this.”

I wasn’t smiling … or was I? (Hmmmmmm …. )

Thanks for visiting …

This moment was captured about 10 years ago.

My horse Bear (left), recently and suddenly passed away due to severe colic. We journeyed almost 12 years together. Photo memories, like this, help me to remember what a cheeky, happy boy he was.

I miss him terribly.
