Kairos

I like to imagine a horse knows her name and will tell you if you ask. Khaleesi was born on March 17 and named Shamrock temporarily until she was renamed Ireland. I knew when she came to live with me however, that she had a real name and would reveal it when she was readyContinue reading “Kairos”

Adventure in the depths

With the world of Covid my circles have become smaller, yet I’ve found instead of feeling grounded or isolated I’ve been finding my ‘GO’ in depth instead of width. I am grateful to live in a place with around 75% National Forest and low population density, so it’s normal for me to spend a dayContinue reading “Adventure in the depths”

Break through

This year I had a word given to me through a dream: regrowth. While all growth comes with its challenges it seems regrowth comes with extra: a removing of the old compromised layers and the process of growing in new layers with the the cushion needed to protect the structure in between. True to theContinue reading “Break through”

Healing and the Hope Cycle

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 I recently heard Holly Furtick talk about the Hope Cycle. She was inspired by an ancient letter written to people in Rome by a guy named Paul who suggested that we should be glad when we get to suffer… because suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character and character produces hope…Continue reading “Healing and the Hope Cycle”

REGROWTH

Happy New Year! A friend recently told me her family always has a single word to define the year ahead. As I pondered this concept I was working through the meaning of a recent dream. I journaled through the dream and the word came to me clear as the dawn of a new day ofContinue reading “REGROWTH”

Ever After…

Sunday, December 23, 2018 Somewhere deep inside us, we humans have basic ideals that can’t be explained by genetics or evolution or experience of the world around us. Yet somehow we share the understanding though what we do with the ideas is varied. Perfect. We all inherently know that we aren’t perfect and it’s somethingContinue reading “Ever After…”

Respect or Robot?

I was sent an interesting blog recently regarding learned helplessness in horses. I recommend it as food for thought and if you read it (including the two embedded links) you may find this post easier to track. Learned Helplesness Blog I was pondering in recent weeks how occasionally I’ve heard horse people talk about aContinue reading “Respect or Robot?”

Go ahead… explain…

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 I believe there are reasons for the struggles and shaping I go through. They are good for me in the long run, but that doesn’t mean I don’t occasionally throw a tantrum. Sometimes I have the energy to take the annoyance or difficulty in stride and sometimes I wish God wouldContinue reading “Go ahead… explain…”

Fly into the turbulence

Saturday, September 22, 2018 I often wake up in the dark on race day and get a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach and wonder what I’m doing here. Why do I do this? Fear. Yes. I do feel fear. Thursday morning my biggest fear was that my Scootboots would fail me. WhatContinue reading “Fly into the turbulence”
