Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers

WM Shadow Spirit Art.jpeg

Yellow solstice to blue. I’ve lost
count of the seasons. Was that
the year of the big blizzard?
Or was it after the old gelding
retired? These are the things

that I do remember: The quality
of the air from the back of a horse.
Bittersweet light easing to dusk.
And a certain plain comfort that
there are chores to be done.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)


This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  1. Love the picture – and the comment! Watching two different animals taking comfort from each other is a joy, isn’t it? (I realize this is a moment – possibly not how they get along 24/7!!!!!

  2. Agree w/Maggie: picture and comment –love ’em. We all need a buddy even if it’s not 24/7. Ev and Susie Mare

  3. Pingback: Numbers (Public Phone) | What's (in) the picture?
  4. Agree with Anna and all comments. I wonder how Anna manages to get such perfect pictures? She really captures the moment, doesn’t she?

    • Well, like I say, I use my phone. Sometimes I marvel, too. I usually get them while I’m mucking and they are just themselves. They don’t change for me. Gotta love that.

  5. I’ve been learning to live more in the now (after 16 years of being a professional pet and service dog trainer). And although I think I’ve done it life long, as I get older, more and more I stop and marvel at perfect moments. They are usually around the simplest of pleasures and live etched in a flow of appreciating each one as it floats along…I really loved this picture and post.

  6. The older I get, the more I live in the moment and notice when a perfect moment alights. And usually it has to do with some visceral awareness of something simple and pure. This was a great post. Thank you.
