the next item on my list of things to do someday: learn to ride on horseback.
I was talking to a horse today, well, trying to talk to a horse anyway. the problem with talking with horses is that we don’t speak the same language. forget Mr. Ed. I’m talking real communication. horses have their own ways of communicating, you know, stomping their hooves, poking, nuzzling, whatever else. I don’t know how to read those signs. I wish I did. and I had this funny thought this afternoon… even people don’t speak the same language. I wish I could read people’s signs better. I wish I knew other people better. sometimes I really feel like I don’t know what people are trying to tell me. like there’s this big gap in the communication between us.
anyway, I’m not getting down on myself here, I was just having a moment. lately a lot of things in my life have been getting clearer. I feel a lot better about myself and a lot more confident in my personal spiritual progress. I am getting better and better day by day. one day at a time. Little realizations like this one today are just ways I use to strengthen my identity, to build strong foundations for my existence. Maybe I’m not so good at communicating at this point in my life. But I’ll improve. I’ll get better, one day at a time. Same thing for all the rest of it. God is so good. I’m having a wonderful time.
