Emily Dickinson wrote: "Hope is a thing with feathers that perches in the soul. And sings the tune; Without the words; And never stops at all.
I would like to think that Hope could also have paws or hooves. That the healing power that emanates from our feathered and furry friends is so powerful that it can be life altering.
Gomez the horse simply IS. He's in the moment. He teaches me to just stay present. To trust.
And that regardless of what happens in all our tomorrows, our souls can fly or run or gallop.
And that Hope is always here, keeping me company.
