Taking the Bate

Spoken word dangles

A bit of fodder for mind

You don’t take the bate.

Art Prescription: have you ever been tested!? When you know someone is trying to get you to take the bate?

Do you realize when others cross boundaries due to their issues?

Relationships are challenging. I really just want to cruise down the middle lane….

Alone in the field

I feel small and listen for

Wisdom of horses.

Art Prescription:  “Take it to the horses,” she said. Take it to the horses, and take a shower, and then think about life. Thank you Deborah!

I spent a couple of hours sketching en plein air today. Ink on index cards:

New Horse at Barn July 9, 2016

Just off the trailer

He takes a breath, and decides

The grass is green here.

Art Prescription:  A new horse arrived at the farm today…Space…a registered Paint. Cool as a cucumber, he gets off the trailer and proceeds to enter his new home with enthusiasm. Just amazing these creatures who live totally in the moment.

Graze February 5, 2016

Like spaghetti strands

Horses eat steady supply

Of hay to keep warm.

Art Prescription:  My horse is so well cared for during these cold winter nights. He gets lots of hay to keep his metabolism going, which is how horses stay warm. Night, night, Finn…
