three white horses


hello hope you are well. vermont just had the most beautiful three days of summer like weather. tonight as i was feeding the horses the wind blew in over the hill, a change was coming and could be felt and heard as the wind howled right through the house.

I have so many things to tell you like how after a year of having a heavy heart for things i had trouble telling to a dear friend but finally doing  as i curled up on the floor by the fire and put the reciever to my ear, tears fell in such a child like way.  we spoke both with our silences and our words, it went well and we made room for better things.  I have had some incredible amount of  things checked off from a very long to do list and i will share them soon and also some of the work i have been doing and project that are coming up i promise.

right now though i can not get passed my last two days of shooting. for about three weeks i have been listening to this song repeatedly even had a friend sing it live at the house but as i often do i listened to it too much and it's effects starting waring off,  that' s until i recieved in email late one night informing me of these incredible beast. shortly after i stood in the fields among them, in awe and in love, all of a sudden the lyrics of the song made sense to me that i had somehow through quiet inward work and much thinking i had finally let go of the part of me that believed i needed to be a certain way and that i gave it my all but instead excepted that a line of the  song  "when i have gone half way..."somehow as i stood among these white horses i realized that all this time in my life i thought i gave it my all but the truth is i had gone just half way, never giving my all for something i really wanted but instead to the version created by what others expected of me the version i saw in my head but not my heart and although i think the three white horses lyrics are about death, i took them to mean, leaving that old way of thinking and doing behind. i know that friends and family will say that i have given my all to everything i do, that is mostly true but i have never truly given it to what my heart has wanted. i do not know what that is but now i will not be afraid to find out.

* i was reminded of these giants
* also for those who emailed me regarding my instagram, here is my online one

* actually five incredibly beautiful and loving white horses, these are just out takes, more of this shoot in months to come.

Takes my breath away. Seriously. i don't know how late it was when you took those photos but the horses white skin looks luminous under the night sky. They look beautiful and terrifying all at the same time. Can't wait to see more.

Awe inspiring, Nadia: your enchanted photos of these magnificent creatures, the gift of being in their presence, your magnificent discovery of your own. Life continues to uncover such pearls here too. Your sharing helps me to better understand. Thank you.

P.S. I loved the line about your friendship, the “making room for better things” so glad it went well.
