Horses & Life, the Beginning

Here we begin my long anticipated addition of horses to EarthWise and the Alabaster Horse. Horses have, and still do, occupy a huge part of my life. It is hard to know where to begin with them. They have been present in my life from before my earliest memories and throughout each part of it. I can say horses have been one constant in my life. I am considering including more about horses in this space. In these times of digital devices, the internet and the crazy fast pace our lives are expected to be, I find horses a haven.…

Never Forget

a meditation When we are small [children] and close to the earth, there is more landscape than time. It’s only later that we forget.

As far as I am concerned, these are the most beautiful colors. Colors found in nature run the gamut from quiet shades of brown to riotous reds of flaming paintbrush flowers.

A Note on Housekeeping...or rather, Blogkeeping

Good day! A couple of days ago, March 31 to be exact, I added a new post. However, due to an unknown-at-the-time technological issue, my subscriber list had disappeared. Grrrr!

My Lusitano, Evaristo, and I Even though the blog has been in hibernation for some months, it has been much in my thoughts.  I’ve been thinking and doing some work on its evolution, how to move it in a direction that feels sustainable for me. Too, I wish to make it a space…
