I had the privilege of visiting an old friend of mine. This gelding, whose name escapes me, showed himself in a nearby pasture. I have been looking for him for months.
He was not aware of the C-19 pandemic, civil unrest, financial crisis, political pandering or other maladies that plague America (and much of the world).
I told him I wish I wasn’t so informed. Then, I sighed.
He swished his tail, turned back to grazing, and slowly walked away. He was content with what he had and what he was doing.
As I surveyed this grand creature enjoying his simple life, I looked towards the rolling canopy above and simply said, “Thank you”.
For a moment I was reminded that peace and contentment are a condition of the heart, and not based on circumstances or stuff.
As Bogart told Bergman in Casablanca, “Here’s looking at you, kid”. It was Bogey’s way of saying I gotta go now, but things will work out.
Love them all Michael … especially the first ‘in your face’ portrait. I like the soft lighting and clouds too!
Hi Denise. The setting was perfect for photography. Close-ups of animals (not people) are almost always funny ! Appreciate your ‘Like’ and comment.
It does get very heavy. Thank you for the reminders and beautiful writing. We miss you guys.
Miss you two. And, look forward to meeting your newest family member !
