It was a nice distraction from the dark thoughts of late. We began our day with feral horses. A colt looks at us for the first time during a hike along the fast flowing Verde River.
We watch this beautiful scene play out as the horses cross the river.
I let the anxiety go and just enjoy the moment with my bud Gordon. I have not been well for several weeks. This is my first real outing in a long time.
Two Bald Eagles, America's national symbol, fly over our heads. They didn't choose to be symbols. But here they were riding the thermals up higher and higher into the bright blue sky.

Anxiety can create some of the worst pain ever with the knowledge that there are savages out there who'd take this country back 50 years!

It's not easy waking up in the morning realizing that things like our environment or people's rights are in jeopardy. No one should live in fear except maybe that bright red Vermilion Flycatcher on the telephone wire. American Kestrels and Merlins love little birds:)
So I, along with over half the American voters, will be watching as these very difficult 4 years unfold. Until next time......
