Glimpses of our essence

I think photographs are glimpses of the entire essence of a day. A string of images that somehow capture the daily magic I feel here-I hope you can here not only the silence of some of these moments-for that is calming-but also listen for the squeals of pigs, wings of birds flipping over head, a snort from a horse, or water being sucked down the long throat of the old goose.

The juxtapositions of the different species always makes the Dr. Doolittle quality of my life here seem bigger than any movie could ever be.

I love seeing your pictures ... you capture the whimsy, the bustle and the moments of stillness and being-ness that captures the "voice" of each denizen of the barnyard. I close my eyes and try to conjure up the smell (each week when I volunteer at the horse stable, I relish that moment of stepping inside the barn and the smell of hay, horse, earth and manure rushing up to meet me - it is my bit of heaven!)

I'm so glad you've been able to incorporate your time working at the stable with the riders and horses. It's so great, I always wanted to do horse therapy when I lived in the city but it was too far away.
