See these very Texan images? I love how a photo can create a whole atmosphere that may belie reality.
The horse and I, we’re not out on a ranch watching the sun go down. I live on a small lot next to other small lots and this little guy doesn’t have much more pasture than that to roam on.
I run to create open space. These runs regularly take me past the crumbling old homes of my neighborhood to see him, calmly grazing with an egret trailing behind him.
Once his owner drove up while I ran by, and the horse came to life, galloping across the field with tail and mane trailing, for the gate. I kept running, soaking up this little bit of country because, like him, I patiently pace around the perimeter of my life, ready for something in my own quiet way.
