This book is the story of a twenty-six year "love affair" between me and my very best friend, Sam.  The book is 254 pages of life lessons and wonderful anecdotes about the kindest horse I've ever known.  Available through all major retailers, or, if you prefer a person...

Dear Katrina and Eliza,

(For everyone else who's reading this, that's Katrina Love Senn of "Losing Weight is a Healing Journey" fame and Eliza Sydnor Romm of world-class dressage horse training fame.)

Foggy spring mornings are magical in the mountains.  The trees are lush with bright green leaves and heavy dew (or a pre-dawn shower?) patters a soft staccato rhythm all around me.  The front porch - wide and long - provides a perfect haven to sip a smoothie and absorb...

Today is Mother's Day, and I am grateful to be able to hug my own mother this day. And grateful she opted to BE a mother the third time. I was not expected. Not wanted. Certainly not needed into the situation she was in. Yet she kept me and birthed me and raised me. An...

Recently, I moved my office from a beautiful downtown hi-rise to my farm.  The view from my former office was striking.  Located on the twenty-first floor, with glass windows comprising the exterior walls, from that office  I could see for miles and miles.  Directly be...

Endings and Beginnings . . .

Last night, a friend's elder horse - a gelding that was widely known and loved in this region - lost an unexpected and tragic battle with colic. I will not name my friend nor her beloved horse to respect her privacy until she feels like spea...
