Have You Been to the Edge

The sign said Horses Make You Happy. I sang all the way up the mountain on my horse,, huffed and puffed from the top of the waterfall on foot down to where it pooled, (and then up again), and even sang my way down the mountain on my horse in an Andean thunderstorm. Yes, it was my horse, Sol, that made me happy. And, the endless vistas of a hundred greens, the shapes of earth so female, the air so pure and life-giving, the water cascading in its perfect generosity and power.

Yes, when I got off the horse, I walked like a drunk. Yes, I am still sore the next day. And yes, it was well worth it.
