recognizing my opening line gets you extra points.
to those of you wondering about herbs, go ahead and ask. i did that for 14 years and i still know a great deal about them.
and now for our regularly scheduled program:
i appreciate in-depth conversation, especially with someone who speaks in complete sentences and uses standard english. i love animals and volunteer at a riding stable.
do you appreciate the outdoors in all its beauty? do you have a curiousity about nature and how it works? do you want to preserve it? do you have a restless mind?
i have no idealized dream of a life-affirming romance. i do hope to meet interesting people from faraway places with strange-sounding names (ontario will do nicely). if you hope to find a long-term romance, please go to the next profile.
if, however, you want someone to: go romp through the woods, have a few beers, beat at pool (i suck), discuss the role of modern man in a transient society or just listen to you, go ahead and contact me.
i don't speak helpless. go ahead and talk. rant and rave, if you like. but if you lapse into self-absorption, sorry. i have better things to do.
i will always tell you what i think. you will find no pretense here. although you may look at the photos and think 'what a sweet li'l country gal,' that illusion will shatter as soon as i open my mouth. i despise country music, hate nascar and don't suffer fools lightly.
if you got this far, and still feel the need to contact me, please do so in complete sentences!!!!!!!
have a nice day.
REQUIEM FOR A THOROUGHBRED
thunder lived in your feet
and lightning in your bones
storm clouds gathered in your guts
while the tempest
rumbled and raged
each time your hooves hit the dirt.
the blaze on your brow
flashed a warning
and we all took notice.
the storm broke
and silence rang
while searching for the rainbow
that never came.
if we listen hard enough
the hoofbeats clatter among the stars
where you nuzzle
