momentum. And when I skim, I gain momentum.
I do try, when I am skimming, to take advantage of the situation because it never seems to last. I, who am now skimming, just sent an email message to Kate Wedemeyer who is a Bones for Life trainer and yesterday came to our class and was Laura and my “student.” I have my fingers crossed that she will agree to work with me from April to September, the months that Shari, my regular teacher, is away. I think she is a good teacher and that her additional perspective will be most useful.
Skimming -- I am also going to write a letter to Susan Harris, who is my Centered Riding mentor, and ask her what options are available to me in terms of my doing two upgrade clinics. If I do not hear back from her, I am just going to let my Centered Riding membership lapse. I am not putting it to use here.
Skimming – today I was very tired and did not, when I got home from class, want to go out and work with the horses. It was windy and cold. But I did it because I knew that if I stayed inside and tried to work that I’d fall asleep at the computer. It is easier to stay awake if I am outside and active.
I am now glad that I did get out and do horsey homeschooling. Pete reminded me of what is a truism, that a dog’s love is unconditional and a horse’s love is conditional. It is because of the latter that I have to take joy in the horses and my collective accomplishments. They all did wonderfully – Tyra held her own when a bag blew in front of us, Tinni spent some time on the gymnasium mat, Hrimmi and Pete and I had a wonderful lesson together, and Raudi remained steady eddy even though it was cold and windy out.
So yes, time’s fun when you are having flies.
