………I get to feed horses and bask in their grounded presence.
While with the horses, I’m also privileged to see real magic in this world – nature.
Nature just is.
There is no good, there is no evil.
Just pure instinct in motion – like a red-tailed hawk capturing its breakfast or a hummingbird taking a long drink of water from a puddle. Or four turkey vultures unwittingly re-enacting a scene as the Fab Four in The Jungle Book (1967). Or a four-foot long gopher snake sunbathing before slithering off into the bushes for a quick snack.
There is so much more that I’m witness to and I wish I could have you see what I see.
I truly feel like I’m living a Disney movie – sometimes the G-rated cartoon (because it does get silly and whimsical), but most of the time, it’s more organic and earthy, like Middle-Earth.
Nature is magic.
It has both light and shadow.
It is primal and ancient and has no regard for you.
Treat it with respect and you will be granted more than you asked.
