yesterday as i let the horses out into tall grasses, a breeze of perfect balance of warm and cool air came over me. i walked in the fields that have already reached my hips, with thoughts of gathering some wildflowers that have been popping up every where. as i took each step hundreds, thousands perhaps of crickets would jump ahead of me, as if they were walking along side, few even landing on me. i walked for longer than i had planned picking flowers as i went, thinking about where my heart is and how sometimes the beating is so faint and fragile and other times it is bounding so hard, a mix of restlessness and satisfaction. i see birds bathing in front of me, horses run to stormy clouds, i hear my hearts voice calmed by were it resides. whether it is the power of a thunder storm, the sun brightly lit blue sky or fog that makes everything disappear i am happy here, being happy can also have moments of doubt, fear, and tinted melancholy and even heartache but each one of those feelings are a note and together are the music that is my life. a life that i am falling in love with full heartedly like that window, when the light hits it just right, it is a song i want to listen to over and over again.
this song is so beautiful, i weeped when i first heard it, i want to live each "word"
