An Afternoon with Reco

Recently, I've taken to snapping a photo or two every day with my iPhone and sending it to whomever might care how my day is going. I figure it's an interesting glimpse into my daily life. My blog has traditionally been about weightier and more introspective things, but sometimes the best things in life are in the little things that I pass by on a sunny Sunday afternoon. So I figure hey, why not share these photos with the world!

This Sunday was particularly wonderful. It was warm and sunny like it hasn't been in NorCal winter in decades, the hills were green, the sky blue, and the air fresh. Reco and I went on a walk in the back country adjacent to the barn and I snapped a couple photos along the way that I felt embodied the experience. The ride reminded me why I love Reco and this riding thing so much.

After I galloped up the hill, an older gentleman who'd been watching stopped to say, "Now that is a beautiful thing." And beautiful it was -- I felt like the most fortunate person in the world.
