So today I was going for a walk and I guess I reached some sort of endorphin high. Everything became really interesting. Colors became brighter and little things held messages. I sat on a bench and watched some lawn tenders take a break. They had a lot of equipment around them and were just laying around. It was cool. An hour or so later I was like, "I could do that". Then I got up and started walking again.

There were some horses swimming in the concrete drainage bayou that runs along the place I take my walks and I stopped to watch them. One horse was approaching two other horses that seemed to be taking a nap. I just stopped and watched. The napping horses were obviously a male and female. They also had many little foals around them. I thought "Hmm. This wandering horse... I wonder if the other horse family will accept him or chase him off..." so I just kind of stood there looking down at them. Over the course of an hour the lone horse made his approach and I guess maybe his eye was on me because it was only when the other male horse noticed him that he noticed the other male.

It was then that the lone horse stopped swimming and stood in the shallow bank of the concrete bayou and puffed out his plumage, making himself appear bigger. The other horse did the same and was notably much larger than the approaching horse. I noted an amount of territorial display in this dance. There was an amount of confrontation at play. The lone horse seemed to get the picture and advanced at a distance down the bayou, giving the other horse family a wide breadth.

I saw then that horses do not aggressively become territorial but go through an understanding sequence of gestures that includes pronouncing one's will to power much in the way that humans do. Only with the lacking of pride it seems much more peaceful. The horses seemed to say "I understand I cause you discomfort and will give you your space. It's all good."

I liked that. And as I watched the lone horse pass the horse family awoke from it's nap. I unwrapped a small zip-lock bag that I had with me and tossed them some crumbles of wheat bread into the water surrounding them. They stood up and waddled towards my offerings. In their excitement, little "Quack Quack"s escaped their beaks. Their little, yellow, cute foals followed closely behind in a simple and linear row. The horse family approached my offering and gobbled them up, nimbly. "Quack Quack" they said, though I heard gratitude. I wonder at times how much real nourishment a concrete bayou offers them.

I continued on my walk. My observation of these horses during my exorcize induced euphoria and observation of the simple loveliness of life in nature will remain with me always. If only we could live like the horses and accept one another and understand each others language as simply and perfectly as they do. It would be a good world.

Bye bye Horses! Brad loves you for your lessons. :)

My favourite user contributed porn-site is now overrun by videos of women felating horses.
