Mary and I make quite the pair. I guess she's always cried at the drop of a hat, but this leaky eye thing is pretty new to me. A dam or some armor or something has been taken away from me within the last year, and now the floods just flow. It's actually kind of sweet.
When I went for my second lesson with the handsome Clyde today, I knew that I had to bring this song along for Mary to hear:
I sat and listened to Mary's birds singing and talking about things I didn't understand while the song played in Mary's ears via the earbuds. I knew it would get to her and it did, sure enough!
Then we had a long discussion about life WHILE CLYDE PATIENTLY WAITED OUTSIDE! Well, he wasn't exactly waiting. Actually, he didn't even know I was there, and he was busy eating anything he could nibble out of the icy slush out back.
But Clyde is a love and he didn't mind it too much when I interrupted his snacking so we could play (at least he didn't tell me if he did mind).
Unfortunately, because Mary and I had spent so much time figuring out how the universe works, there wasn't enough horse time today. It all works out, though. I have to say that the best part of my lesson was rubbing Clyde's behind and up under the back side of his tail. That place feels weird! I didn't know! I've never been so, ummm, intimate with a horse (or very many other living beings) before.
Now that Clyde and I have played kissy face and I've rubbed his, ahem, cute hind end, I just don't know where this relationship will go. I'm beginning to get a little crazy over that handsome guy with the big, brown eyes.
I saw horses from my window,
They were watching all the cars go.
And they don't care that I am broken,
close my eyes and run beside them.
Through the valleys and the pastures,
and I know you'll never find me.
'Cause I'm already free.
