Before I was in the 6th grade, my family lived in Maryland. We had a Weeping Willow Tree in our back yard. I used to play on that tree a lot as a child. I have fond memories of it.

Currently, I'm on a bit of a working vacation. I'm working on jousting. Sure, did it last year but it's important to keep training and get better. So I'm spending my days working hard, riding horses, painting and cleaning. It's fun and it's work. It's harder physically than my job and a much longer day. But it feels good.

Montante is with me. She gets to spend most of the day outside being a free range dog only being chained up when we run errands or are on horseback, although she did get to join us on one ride. She does a fine job staying away from the road. She wants to play with the horses, chickens, peacocks and cats. One horse wanted to play with her which scared her.

Today, we did a long afternoon session. Everyone got sunburned but made a lot of progress. I found one more horse I can ride... if I keep calm. My anxiety transfers to the horse.

After, we grabbed ice cream and came back to relax. I curled up next to Monte on the floor and briefly fell asleep. When I woke, I found the house quiet. Monte and I went outside and I just decided to sit under the Weeping Willow Tree on the property. Monte is jumping and trying to grab the branches in her mouth while I read. There's a wonderful breeze that hits me and I think how I could just stay here and never return home.

It's really good to know what you like and value in life. Gives a person direction.
Didn't know you had a dog. Congrats =)

Anxiety transfers to a lot more than horses.

Had the dog about a month. Forgot I hadn't posted here about it.
