Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy

009It can feel creepy riding on the rail sometimes. It could be a feeling of foreboding. Dread almost. Something isn’t quite right. Are you being watched? Maybe you’re imagining it.

Your horse sees him first. It’s that teenage barn cat, hanging on the fence like wadded-up laundry.

You blow it off, laugh at your horse for his foolishness. But he stays very alert and pushes a detour loop around the cat. Because he knows.

I have noticed that what cats most appreciate in a human being is not the ability to produce food, which they take for granted, but his or her entertainment value.” -Anonymous Cat.

Your horse thinks you are the one who doesn’t get it. What part of predator don’t you humans understand?

Close up. Personal. Intimate.

Sharing breath is sacred. No matter who does it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half

Polarities 

Bold and timid. Turbulent 
and still. Deliberate and 
spontaneous. Stoic and

emotional. Powerful and 
frail. Physical and spiritual. 
Eternal and painfully mortal.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Door

WMNubeThreshold

I have pounded on some mighty doors and been locked out of others. I’ve even kicked a few in.

I can literally see my hand, in my mind’s eye, turn the knob. Some were doors to unknown opportunity and healing and possibility. There were other doors that I closed in order to care for myself better; doors to negative places that I outgrew as I knew more.

The best doors are the ones that are left wild open all the time; the door that welcomes us home, the door to “higher” learning.
