Todd still looking amazing at 25.
See, this is my opinion: we all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake. And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.
After you go so far away from it, though, you can’t really get it back. You can have seconds of it. Just seconds of knowing and remembering. When people get weepy at movies, it’s because in that dark theater the golden pool of magic is touched, just briefly. Then they come out into the hard sun of logic and reason again and it dries up, and they’re left feeling a little heartsad and not knowing why. When a song stirs a memory, when motes of dust turning in a shaft of light takes your attention from the world, when you listen to a train passing on a track at night in the distance and wonder where it might be going, you step beyond who you are and where you are. For the briefest of instants, you have stepped into the magic realm.
That’s what I believe ~ Robert Mccammon
Fickle twists of fate decide who comes in to our lives, we decide who stays. . .
Black pony, 20 years adding colour to my life, and everyday he still sprinkles his magic without fail, reminding me theres more to life than we will ever know. . .
"We have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins, carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains. 93 percent stardust, with souls made of flames,
we are all just stars that have people names.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl
Never lose sight of the essence that is you, underneath all the noise, underneath all the false layers you build up to protect yourself, underneath it all there's a wild free spirit, a magic, something you've long since forgotten, you just gotta open up your eyes again to what you've stopped believing in. . .
Life isn't perfect, but it has perfect moments. . .
You can't tame the spirit of something that has magic in its veins. . .
They are never just a horse, they are magic makers, therapists, best friends, gateways back to a place we've long since lost in ourselves. Never just a horse.
We need the colour and wildness, as much as we try and make our world black and white we cannot exist without colour and wilderness. . .
Baby we were born to run. . .
You could never get tired of photographing these amazing animal's. The fact that they let you ride on their backs, the fact that they can happily cruise along at 40mph, the fact that although they are tame you know when you look in their eyes that they are still wild at heart. These are the facts that get you out of bed at 5.30am on a Saturday.
Came accross this most amazingly coloured dog on my travels through the Pyrenees.
A magic place deep in the Cantabrian mountains. Flora's first visit, leaving paw prints among those of wolves and bears.
Never under estimate the beauty in an otherwise ordinary day. . .
When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul. ~ AD Williams
Nature's majesty in the heart of the Pyrenees. . .
A runner makes it's way to post in the November sunshine at ludlow race course.
Do not try to control nature, the sun or animals, but travel along side them and treat every moment as magic knowing that you will not pass this way again. . .
"I call horses 'divine mirrors' - they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that."

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
We are all broken, that's how the light gets in ~ Ernest Hemingway
Wild as they do come. . .
