Lately, I have been spending free time with the horses. Not asking them to do anything. Not brushing them. Just reading while they graze in the field or loaf in the barn.
The zen, yin, right brain, Dionysian side of me feels that I am learning about Rodney & Milton outside of their utility to me. That sitting peacefully without purpose tunes me to the energy of all things. That it is fun.
The productive, yang, left brain, Apollonian side of me is damn sure I am wasting time.
