It feels like I have been gone forever, even thought it was only five days. Had an amazing trip topped with brilliant insight via Bramble and Jack, the two horses I had the privilege to work with at the Epona course. I'll have to make an attempt of explain it all in my other blog, once I get my thoughts together. I (re)-discovered so many important things not only about myself, but about the horses, too. They know so much more about life than we will ever know. I realize that somewhere along the way between trying to heal Little Love's feet and freaking out about her skin condition, I started focusing too much on the "doing" part of our relationship, instead of slowing down and just "being". It's not surprising, since I am definitely a "doer"; it is the slowing down that does not come so easily to me. I intend to change that. So what if I don't walk her every day, so what if I don't soak her feet - sometimes just being there and listening is more important. There is so much she can teach me and tell me and help me with. I can't wait to see her tomorrow.
