Blue Skies

By • Oct 4th, 2011 • Category: LeadMare Tales

by LeadMare | It’s when I’m outside my daily routine, surrounded by nature under the vast blue sky, that blue sky thoughts fill my head and heart.

My Colorado Horse Adventure

By • Sep 5th, 2011 • Category: LeadMare Tales

by LeadMare | Year after year I dreamt of taking a horse riding trip in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and year after year I came up with excuses for putting it off. I’d tell myself, It’s expensive.

Synchronicity & Causality

By • Jul 2nd, 2011 • Category: LeadMare Tales

I’m the type who loves to ponder meaning, so when I saw a photo of me and my lesson horse, our strides in sync as we began warming up for a ride, it led me to ask this question: When a horse and human are riding (or walking) in sync, is it a result of unrelated actions occurring together by chance (synchronicity)? Or is it a result of cause and effect (causality)?

by LeadMare | I enjoy my coffee in the morning, but the fact is I don’t need artificial stimulation to get moving — I’m naturally caffeinated. If you’re a person with a lot of energy, you know that if you don’t release that energy in a healthy way, it’s no fun for you and the people around you…
