Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

I use the word forward every day. In equine terms, it defines a preferred way of moving, but Edgar Rice Burro defines forward differently: Brash, impertinent, assuming, audacious, bare-faced, bold, brazen, cheeky, confident, fresh, impudent, presumin...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Isn’t the word Illumination sometimes used in conjunction with saints?  Maybe this horse with a halo is a patron saint- sent to ferry us above the fray to a better place. She probably isn’t a saint at all, but if … Continue reading...
