Ah, the frailties of our human Lives . . .
How do we know if our Life will work out?
How do we cope with the hand Life seems to deal us?
What do we do about uncertainties???
“Do you believe in Magic? (Like the Lovin’ Spoonful song from my 60s childhood.)
I have to say, I do!” DawnHoof
Reflections . . .
Twenty eight years ago, something wonderful happened — Starboy, my Horse-of-a-Lifetime, was born, in my arms, outside my dome house, up a canyon, in Malibu.
Yet that same night, twenty eight years ago, something awful happened — my (then) marriage fell apart.
So much uncertainty. So many questions.
How were my two young daughters and I to make it? How would I feed and care for all the horses? How would our lives work out???
Flash forward . . .
To tonight — Starboy’s twenty eighth birthday . . .
When I rode my same Horse-of-a-Lifetime into the forest, into the moonlight (aligned with Mars, no less!) under the vast canopy of September 19, 2018 stars.
Starboy Moonlight Ride
Dark across the forest floor.
Starboy’s hooves, resound
Upon the path, like heartbeats —
Twenty eight years
His melody strums the earth,
Graces the moonlight,
Carries my weight, still.
Twenty eight years
Starboy’s movement, rocking,
Swaying. Dancing moonbeams
Sparkling off his flowing mane.
Filling my heart with peace.
Wonder. Love for Life.
Like that first night
When he was born —
With so much promise,
:)) Fulfilled :))
Yet alongside the joy,
I remember the sorrow.
The uncertainty. The loss.
And I realize — WOW!!!!
All is well! Everything
Turned out beautifully!
My children: Grown, happy.
My horse dreams: Fulfilled.
My (now) marriage: Deep, fulfilling :)) :))
Our home: Beautiful.
My Life: The Life of my Dreams.
I achieved the accomplishment
We all wish for — hope for.
And I marvel — at the Magic!
And I thank God . . .
And I thank goodness.
And I smile :))
And my gratitude runs deep.
And strong . . .
What about you?
Is this Magic limited to just a few? Heck no! I believe it’s truly available to us all.
Where are you in your Life right now? Joy? Sorrow? Uncertainties?
Pray. Do your best. Follow your dreams. Look up.
Make your best decisions whenever you come to a crossroads.
Dust yourself off when you fall. Get back up and go at it again.
And you’ll get there. It might take a while.
But be encouraged — you’ll manifest the Life of your dreams :))
Do you believe in Magic?
Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her whenever it starts?
And it’s magic if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ’bout-a rock and roll
If you believe in magic, don’t bother to choose
If it’s jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen, and it’ll start with a smile
That won’t wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping, and you can’t seem to find
How you got there so just blow your mind
If you believe in magic, come along with me
We’ll dance until morning till there’s just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing, baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music and the music’s in me
(The Lovin Spoonful, 1965 — lyrics)
