I have written stories and ridden horses--frequently simultaneously--for as long as I can remember. I grew up on Long Island and spent my formative years in the saddle--just imagining.
Not surprisingly, my stories are usually infused with the mystery and spirituality horses have brought to my life.
My philosophy, in brief :: (No, not in briefs, but that's a nice image, thank you very much.)
We are all immigrants in spirit, with our minds, hearts, and souls being the final frontier.
Yep, that's it.
I've discovered this is what happens to all my main characters--whether by choice or accident or design--they go somewhere else.
At first, this change is external--physical. Over time, their journeys lead to a place of discovery and growth that is within each individual alone. The final frontier to which we all can go.
Boldly go . . .
