The other day, on an impulse of the moment, I decided to take a traipse. I think that when I'm surrounded with the beauty of creation, the clear, open expanse above, rustling of the trees, falling leaves, chickens making their noise, distant barking dogs, wind chimes in the distant... my heart comes alive a little more.
The neighbor horse, nicknamed Sunshine, slowly made her way to the fence to watch me pass by. And yes, I very gladly walked up to her and gave her a pet on the nose. I was a bit leery... I'm no Roy Rogers with horses, mind you.
But really, there's nothing quite like a long, leisurely, country traipse.
