there are few things in life that provide escape for me. these include reading, cruising, baking, writing, listening to music, and of course horseback riding.
i rode this morning with hepe, a high school classmate. and it was exactly like before. total freedom. i think (don't know if i mentioned this before) that horseback riding is the closest i could get to flying. although a motorcycle ride comes close, the gallop of a horse is something else. and riding bareback takes the cake.
for the first time in days i felt like i could do anything, and that my loneliness was a thing of the past, left behind in the dust. it was just for a moment, but it was enough.
i feel a little more hopeful now, and a little less depressed. and that's always a good thing.
