The Horse Whisperer

It never ceases to amaze me what's in our own backyard here in Hannover! I try to take a brisk hour's walk every day throughout the week, hopefully in a new direction or down a new path.

The other day I went to check out a Greek restaurant on a side street a couple of blocks away and noticed that if I continued down the street, I'd be smack-dab in the middle of horse pastures! Unbelievable.

Which is where I found the horse whisperer. Not me, the horse! I was way too busy snapping away on telephoto to notice, as she walked towards me and once I put the camera down, that she was right there in front of my face! Just as still and quiet as I'm not! It took my breath away until I had the presence of mind to listen to what she was saying. The phrase "Be still and know that I am God" comes to mind. Or "Be here now. Be someplace else later. Is that so complicated?"

The next day, late afternoon, I went back and took pictures of the fence posts of her pasture. And the barbed wire. She doesn't notice or care much about such things, I guess. She's more interested in my Soul, which is my fantasy! (What's yours?)
