This is going to be my new, horsemanship journey theme song...WOW, I love it. I've always been a U2 fan but add Mary J, Blige and you've got one heck of a duo! Take time to listen and watch this video, it is worth it...turn it up people! (My first U2 concert was in Florida, I believe it was in the mid to late 80's, and my parents were nice enough to let me go there with a distant cousin (all the way from NY). If I recall, I rode a bus to Syracuse from Canandaigua, then we flew (my first flight) to Florida. It was awesome, we were there a week, I still have the photos. Thanks mom and dad.)
If you've ever seen Pat and Linda Parelli play with their horses in videos or if luck would have it, in person, songs just make the interactions even better. They instill feelings and emotions, they make people reflect, and are simply amazing and enjoyable. Can me sappy but, oftne. songs mixed with experiences make me bry for joy, for pain, and probably for no good reason! I try to be very close with the Universe (at least my little piece of it) and as I age, my emotions and feelings seem way more intense - maybe it's just good old fashioned hormones, lol. What ever it is, music has always been part of my life (my family is full of musicians) and therefore, I appreciate it, all kinds.
Next time you go play with your horse, take your iPod! (I need to get one...next on the list. I could use my cell phone but then, I'd be interrupted as usual.)
