Because of the loo roll crisis Kat has been spending more time just hanging out with me in the field.
As a bonus, I’ve been finding out more about the trail riding journeys she has planned for us. Any bonus stops at enlightenment, I might add.
Rather alarmingly, Kat wants to go on long journeys for days on end (or even weeks!) where we travel all day and stay out all night. She says they will be her Great Escape from the hurly burly of modern human life.
I rather like the journeys I do already – from the grass, to the water trough, to the hay and back to the grass. Throw in a stop on the way for some mutual grooming with my pals and it’s time to hit the shade for a doze.
Apparently, humans also embark on such journeys to try and find themselves. I reminded Kat she was right next to me in my field so there was really no need for all the toil and hardship.
She said it was my fault she wanted to spend so much time with me because I offered peace and calm – something that isn’t readily available in the human world.
Well honestly, humans can be a bit dense at times.
If they only managed to replace their endless noise and motion with a good dose of our peace and calm, not only would they stop interfering with the balance of the planet but, they might be able to discover that elusive thing known as Themselves.
No arduous journey required. I get to stay at home and enjoy the quality grassy munchies I’m accustomed to. Job done.
Maybe an increase in my peace and calm dosage might give Kat the escape and discovery she wants without all this journey nonsense.
I will need to be a bit nicer to her, but I can work on that – a sacrifice for the greater good.
