TIME PASSING and a sip of wine

It’s late, and, as usual, I can’t sleep.  So, my thoughts jump in and realizations appear.  Odd thing, aging.  It plays with your mind and things you never thought about before begin to enter.  Tonight my thoughts are the sad realization that if I live as long as my mother, I have about ten years […]

Writing memories

Writing has always been a way for me to express my thoughts. While I had The Old Horse to write about, it was easy to find words because he was such a part of my life and easy to talk about. I find myself at a loss of words now because memories of actual life […]

HORSES, MOVING, DOGS, MONEY, and MORE

It had been a few days since I spent some time in the saddle, and I missed Reo. Last Wednesday called to me, as I had been wandering around the house, restless as usual. It was a wonderful day for riding, the rain had stopped, it was slightly breezy, and the air felt just damp […]
