People don't often want to know about or really hear your sadness or your fears.
They want to tell you it will be okay
but you already know that, you're a human with a big brain.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of room in the world these days - space
to be, to process, to work through.
When you find a place and a people who are doing the same kind
of working through as you - and who get it so much that they can't wait
to provide that same kind of experience for you,
well, that makes you want to hold on tight.
When those "people" include horses who can see, smell, and feel your
excitement, your anticipation, and yes, your nervousness too, and
they are here for all of it to teach you things that will carry you
your whole life through, well, that just might be heaven.
When there's a guide who is wise beyond her years, who wants to
create the place for you to have the space and takes the time to make
sure you notice the brilliance of all that you are learning, that, my friend,
is where the magic happens.
When it all comes together during the scariest time in our collective
lives, and we are at first joyous because it's a thing to do, an experience
to provide - in real life - and then we realize that the magic being
created will last long after the masks are gone, well, there really are
no words for that.
