Morning sun

The sunrise this morning was just too neat (well in real life) to pass up a picture! Not that photos do a sunrise much justice!!

my horse's feet...

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder
He carries me away from all my fears
And when the world threatens to fall asunder
His mane is there to wipe away my tears.
