I rode a horse yesterday for the first time in 30 years. It was actually more like an adult pony ride with a guide and a no trotting or cantering rule. Still…it was peaceful and nostalgic and a sweet connection to a living thing on our living planet on a near-perfect day that was gratefully received.
The horse’s name is Cooper. I’ve talked about a dog teaching me lessons this summer here https://writeitdownletitgo.com/2015/07/24/zeke-the-elder-not-a-comic-book-character/and now I see that my sweet/vicious cat and Cooper the horse have eldered me as well.
I know what you’re thinking. Of course I know that people elder me all time. There’s just something about these animals’ straightforward message that has really broken through my human mind clutter to sooth my sore heart, which I also talked about before here https://writeitdownletitgo.com/2015/06/16/my-heart-is-sore-so-i-should-stop-banging-it-against-the-past/. I’m a sucker for a full-circle theme.
So, move bravely on to your Monday! Maybe notice who is eldering you and don’t forget to catch the lesson!
