“Be Present ”
I stand at the end of the beach and feel the wet, muddy sand in my toes. I enjoy the moment the waves wash over my feet.
I breathe in a whiff of the salty air.
I look at the face of the person next to me and smile. For a moment they just look at me. Then they smile a little, too.
I talk softly to the horse. I let them smell the brush i am holding. I then brush them. Horse brings it’s soft nose to me. Then breathes a relaxation sigh.
It’s being in the moment that is the gift- the present.
It grounds me.
I can feel Ok in that moment.
Take time to be present in any day.
“Le Cadeau du Cheval“
Several artists in the Equine Art Guild were a part of this unique tribute to the horse. Click on the image above to read all about it and the artists who participated in it’s creation, as well as see where it will be coming to a location near you in the coming year!
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
