Happy 2023, everyone. I really wanted to do a 2022 wrap-up post before the end of the year because there was so very much to relate, but obviously that didn't happen. I still want to write that post for my own records at least, but it will take a lot of time to wrangle the words and photos into shape, so don't hold your breath.
It takes far less time to tell you that 2023 has begun in proper fashion – on the back of a horse. Long-time readers will know that this is my one firm annual tradition, and today dawned bright and beautiful and dry, enabling not only being astride, but really riding. Stella and I had a lovely schooling session (with two red-tailed hawks soaring overhead) followed by a ride down the gravel lane and back, stopping to wish neighbors a happy new year along the way.
All may not well in the world nor in my smaller sphere of life, but it is well with my soul. 😊
