When I Ride…

Gratitude: Day 6 and Comfortable with Isolation…



“Don’t you get lonely out there all by yourself'”?

Whenever someone asks me that, I feel all warm and giggly inside. Some of my best times have been when I was alone. When I was living in Austin, while I was going to the University, I went through a period of feeling so alone I think I started hallucinating one night…staring at the wall…but that is another story.

Spending time alone and being lonely are two different things, as you know.

I love my time, that I choose to spend alone. I am usually in my horse trailer, listening to “chill” music like Carlos Nakai, drinking hot tea or a gin and tonic, time of day not really important…and watching what’s going on outside the trailer. Might be birds on the feeder, cows with calves, dogs wrestling…

I love to read, take photos, pick up rocks…YES! Pick up rocks! I love either clearing a small area of rocks or finding fossils, arrowheads, quartz crystals. Looking down while I’m walking is fun and also keeps me from tripping.
