Playing Marco Polo In A Dressage Ring

Awareness of the outside world. 11 Things You May Not Know About Marco Polo, by Andrews, 2013 updated 2018.
Proof, once again, that everything in my life becomes a blog post. [Life with a Blogger]

Some members of my family are more visually-driven than text-oriented. Therefore, I have been dragged kicking and screaming in the 21st century. I am part of a Marco Polo chat group. Think short videos in place of text messages.

Since I detest how I look in selfies, I tend to send a short clips from a recent activity, perhaps from one of my park walks. ‘Hi. I’m here. This is what I have been doing.’ The sort of mildly pointless message you send to family to let them know you continue to respirate.

As I was sitting on Rodney taking photos for yesterday’s post, my phone pinged. I realized I had not sent a Polo for the week. Well, I can fix that right now.

Eventhough I don’t like selfies, I still start each Polo with a shot of my face. Turns out my mother and I sound very similar on the recordings. Even I can hear it. So, I start with my face. Then the rest of the people know which one of us is talking. Although the horse would have given it away this time.

A person on in the chat group asked me, “How long do you have to stand in that ring with him before he’s comfortable?” Horse training in a nutshell.

Do you Marco Polo?

Stay safe. Stay sane.
