Woman and Beast

Thursday, 8 November, 2007

Big, black horse
Small, scared me
Stand on the steps

Nearly gave up
Saw it in my sight
Something small stepped in
Majic, clear and light

Lean in to mount
Cry baby, cry, can’t

Sweating, in a tizzy
Emabarrased, cringe and shy
Verbal diarroeha
The clock ticking by

Looking over
Very high
Leg cocked out
Stuck in the mind
Time stops for a moment – over we go

I’m on
On ….. a horse!

Millions before
But today just me
Mounted – achieved

Beast between my legs

tense body
wibble wobble
movey movey
jiggle joggly
hands on my saddle gripped
stiff, excited uneasy – Rejoice!

Stop!!!!  Stop …. relax


Near perfection
Controlled but loose
Enjoying the body’s movement

Duke and MeDuke and II did it.  I got on a horse, rode it and enjoyed it.  Thank you to the children for my voucher!  This is a HUGE achievement for me and I am so proud of myself for doing it (I nearly went home).

Jump and Shout!

Heather on the TrampetteI’ve recently been given a wonderful trampette and here is Heather having a go on it.  This morning I’ve been bouncing to Operation Blade by Public Domain and it reminded me how much I miss dancing so I had a look at all my CD’s and found my Disco Dancing Hits Album – yeah!  I find it so easy to exercise to ‘body’ music that I love so this should keep me going.  I’m increasing the number of minutes I jump by one a day – good for the heart, body and soul!

Beauty in the Detail

Purple FlowerberriesYellow Rose Bud

I was huffing and puffing today because i didn’t really want to do the garden but it was too wild to ignore any more.  When I began looking at the beautiful details I began to relax and enjoy.  If you look at the rose you can even see that the dew is still on the petals.

 It’s amazing how much we miss when we are only looking at the bigger picture.  Also I found it interesting to observe again that even nature is not perfect – beautiful but not perfect!

Grateful for Your Help!

Mat & Dave Fixing my fence Thanks so much to Mat and Dave for fixing my fence.  It took much longer than anticipated.  They did a great job and really made me laugh as well. 

It’s really nice to know that I don’t always have to do everything myself and that it’s important to allow people to help me!  

Very, very grateful and highly amused that we have had a fence panel shortage in this country for months now.  A reminder of how much we take for granted – and how much we just shouldn’t do that!

Ban Comic Sans? Never!

Friday, 21 September, 2007

I love the font Comic Sans, its friendly and I’ve had an unusual amount of pleasure from it over the years. I’ve used it a lot and was surprised and a bit miffed when I discovered a strange website this morning: ban comic sans. It’s amusing and a little sad. …. but as always a silver linning – this site has given me an idea for the structure of a site that I want to have soon. x

Friends Again It was a long time since I’d been to a dinner party!  I met lots of new people and it’s got me in the mood to host my own – now all I need is a table.
