Writing is a passion of mine.
My other passion, horses, melds with writing and coaching to
address my core passion which is the "adventure of life" or more
accurately, the pursuit of play. I write, horse-around, and
coach because it is fun and it is my transportation to
passionate play. Play as I use it here, means joy and the utter
lack of resistance to being in the moment. It is the
all-encompassing sensual experience that includes the
ever-present current of our inextricable connection to life.
If I have a certain emotion
elicited by an experience, I love to write about the experience
in a very real and sensual way. As I proceed, I build the
emotion to a fervent level within myself thus expanding my
experience of that emotion and allowing it a place within.
Writing transports what is “within” out and what is “out” back
in. For me, it creates a sense of oneness, a dissolving of
perceived separateness. I have a greater awareness of self than
I previously had for having written a piece or, for that matter,
having coached a session. The experience is the same when I
Life is not a steady, hum-drum
beat (at least for me), but rather a symphony complete with
crescendo and berceuse (lullaby). The interesting thing is that
I have begun to notice that every crescendo holds at its heart a
berceuse and the berceuse waits for the crescendo. One is not
whole without the other, nor is the imagination incited unless
we hear life’s myriad tones combined.
Daily journals about life with horses, the lessons they teach
about community, integrity and harmonious living.
