The tang of fox
Tunes for a Monday Morning

Daily magic


This is Benji, our neighbour's sweet, elderly horse, who lives in a field just down the road. His companion horse died last year, and now many of us stop by regularly to bring him a treat or have a chat and make sure he's not lonely.

"There's a flame of magic inside every stone and every flower, every bird that sings and every frog that croaks. There's magic in the trees and the hills and the river and the rocks, in the sea and the stars and the wind, a deep, wild magic that's as old as the world itself. It's in you too, my darling girl, and in me, and in every living creature, be it ever so small. "

 - Kate Forsyth (The Puzzle Ring)

There is certainly magic in Benji, and the love he inspires in everyone.



Oh, that face! I certainly could not, would not even try to just walk past, no matter how "busy". My frail elderly kitty purrs as soon as she senses someone in the room where she sleeps away most of the day. Such a draw to let all else wait while we spend time with her, often just sitting still beside her. Animals impart deep wisdom.

Thank you for this beautiful post, Terri!
