Lauren tells me the difference between looking like a beauty and looking like a hag is all about the camera angle…

 

I have so much to write about, I don’t know where to begin. There’s kayaking, and more on my first sober boat trip, and reconnecting in a big way with old friends, and my new level of age-defying fitness, and the Pine River, and work, and Michigan hiking trails, and equine recovery coaching, and the belly laughs that started on Friday afternoon and continued through the weekend, and Ross’s cabin (and kindness), and the fact I am now using Oxford commas with impunity…

 

You know when you go to Trader Joe’s and you get a bunch of great food, like their organic lintel soup, smoked trout, pre-packaged salads, yogurt raisins and pretzel bread? And then you can’t decide what to eat so you eat the whole container of yogurt raisins and then the trout and feel kind of sick but satisfied? That’s how I feel this morning and after several years of having nothing to report (the equivalent of a diet of pretzels and Diet Coke), I am fecund with options. I did A LOT this weekend…

 

So I think I will talk about laughing and horses and vanity. On Friday, Rae and David and I went to a beautiful ranch called, One Neigh at a Time and learned all about Equine Gestalt Coaching Method for recovery. In fact we are introducing the experience to the women at Sanford House today. We got the giggles for some reason and that started a weekend of laughter.

 

David sent me this photo he took: When I posed I thought I looked like the girl from National Velvet  – instead, I look more horsey than the horse:

It’s small – I wouldn’t want you to turn to stone – don’t the horse and I look exactly alike?

 

Later in the weekend, Carrie and Annie were trying to get me to take the beater kayak and Annie said, “Well we thought you should have that one, because there’s no foot pedals and you are so much more fit than we are…” I was on that in a minute. I said, “Okay – yes I better take that one…” and then I saw they were laughing – appealing to my vanity and hopping into Ross’s LL Bean finery and leaving me the plastic, toy kayak. Cheek.

 

I think you should read more about Equine Coaching…

 

I think I need some, to deal with my issues – too much fun and not enough of Trader Joe’s  humble pie…

It’s all about the camera angle…

Today I’m not drinking because I am going to be coached…

 

How come you’re not drinking?

    So excited to have all of you come out to the ranch. Our horses are great listeners. Drop your troubles on the arena floor, and leave lighter and happier. Come experience what its like to be Touched by a Horse.
