My bestest and oldest blogging buddy, Brian over at truth is freedom wrote a very nice post about me yesterday. Brian is my best blogging buddy,hes very smart, very talented, and a compassionate guy.
In an email Brian had stated this (I hope he doesnt mind me sharing with you):
” I remember I lurked for a while and read through your posts. I was intimidated a little bit by your passion and love of horses because I didn’t know if you would like someone who didn’t know about them.”
Luckily, on 4/24/06 Brian commented here at the Res, all I can say is, the Spirits were smiling down at us that day, we formed a bond.
Horses have been my passion since I started having memories as a small child. Horses are a part of me. Occassionally people ask me to explain my connection with horses. It is hard to put it into words. I am at my best in the company of horses. I feel that is where I belong, I understand them, I find happiness and peace. Like I said, very hard to put into words….. Brian intimidates me with his passion and love for words. Brian also intimidates me with his strength to face down his inner demons.
In yesterday’s post he included his poetry that he has written and given to me. Please give Brian’s post a read, I am very honored to be his friend: truth is freedom: “BarnGoddess” .
I have always thought of Brian’s poetry that he has given me as diamonds. They are precious, and they last forever.
Thank you for the wonderful words Brian!
This poem reminds me of Brian.
Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu.
when someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.I passed around the corner,
and someone saw my grin.
when he smiled I realized.
I’d passed it on to him!
I thought about that smile,
then I realized it’s worth.
a single smile just like mine,
could travel round the Earth!
Monday, I will post Part II of The Dead Girl. The followup and ending of The Dead Girl .
