Farrier, dentist

And a new horse to the farm

Sweat rolls down my back.

Art Prescription:  A wonderfully busy day at Blue Skies today! I drove out early hoping to get their before Bodie, the new horse, arrived on a trailer. It was shaping up to be an exciting morning around the barn. Of course Max, the barn cat, was asleep with his legs dangling in the back room.

Bodie arrived and even with all the activity, he got off the trailer cool, calm, and collected. The fact that horses live in the moment is demonstrated over and over again.

So I thought we all might need an ice-cream cone:

As life whizzes by

Perhaps we should get out our

Amazing color.

Art Prescription:  Because no two days are alike…and why would you want to wait anyways to show your best, your truth, your individuality. It’s a fast ride, so fasten your seatbelt and feel everything.

Hummingbirds whorl by

Feathers are dropped lovingly

Angels even swim.

Art Prescription:  We, those of us who seek, look for and appreciate signs from nature. Animal medicine has strong power and lucky are those who pause to find the messages.

Early spring pansy

When kittens are born and find

Their forever home.

Art Prescription:  Had to say good-bye to our beloved Mocha today. He came into our lives in spring of 2003. We will miss him every day…beloved Mocha.

Layers of feathers

A silent flight through the woods

The noble Barn Owl.

Art Prescription:  Did you know this beautiful creature is endangered?

I did not go mad

Gathering moss, the blue shade

Of the tall bamboo.

Art Prescription: Look for what is good and soothing and calm…

The ticking clocks gonna come
