For months, I've needed to get away from the perpetual loud and busy of normal life. For months, it's seemed impossible.
Last week was different. Circumstances converged, producing a situation where my car could once again travel to faraway places
and I was put in touch with kind people who offered me a fully domesticated train carriage in which to spend the weekend
on the 10 hectares they call home.
I found there were horses big and small to befriend,
songs to be sung outdoors,
and jewels to admire
I came away hoping
that the peace
would ride along with me back to the city
