forgotten ways, need, connections…

‘We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back.’ Peter Gray

Ranch in Central Oregon. I have not ridden but one horse in my life. ‘Gumdrop’ was the horse, when I was 8 y/o….we failed to form a connection on a pack trip into the Wallowa Wilderness in Oregon.

Whether your horseshoe in life is turned upward or downward, may your good fortunes be collected and/or poured forth for you and yours!!!

take on the darkness…

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” August Wilson

Don’t you wonder?

“The barn standing so simple, embraced with time past, an old dwelling full of memories that forever last.   Rain dripping down the eaves, rabbits burrowing underneath the leaves.   Walking with my mind back to days untold, a path in which my father tread until he was very old.”  Lorraine E. Watson, Ode to the Old Barn

forgotten barn…

old vines reach upward
faded red siding gives way

old, seldom used…

along a remote road in Central Oregon (above Rufus). Standing alone with the modern wind turbines and power lines in the hazy distance.

a place in the country…

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.” Carolyn Jourdan, Heart in the Right Place
