camels for horses...



we rode under a blazing two o clock sun for three days in a row and i was quite the happiest person alive. mt meru in the background, frosty tusker beers, cowboy hats, sweaty, dusty, happy faces and all the pretty horses. i sang around a lamp (not a fire because we didn't want to be responsible for burning down the entire stable yard with 40 odd horses in it). dirk played his irish drum. ricarda harmonised. carlos stared at the stars. i sang and stared at the southern cross lying on her side.




i slept well. so deeply. with no dreams.
my horse likes snicker bars, i've discovered.
back to real life now. back up on the dusty, dusty hill. sigh sigh. i honestly try to see the magic in each day. dream days up. intention, visualization and bingo. before you know it....good old responsive universe. i have learnt two things lately.


you cannot dream people up and obviously, you can't dream up rain.

it's proving to be quite taxing these days - finding the magic in each moment.. ..what with the bare fields, the red dust, the relentless heat, the hot wind and fat stars...and no flipping rain. athumani swears the rain will come. with a smile on his face. damian said it was going to start raining today...and he's always right. except today. now he says in ten days time. anyway, not to sound like a stuck record or anything....
but people, Do Your Rain Dances please....
otherwise it'll be camels for horses.

asante sana...over and out.

bisous bisous bisous and snicker bars all round.... X.X.X. j

At this very moment I've got Scabby the cat and Gribbers the hamster dancing round the sitting room in an ancient rain dance, praying that you will soon be drenched with the wet stuff. The skies will open and you'll have rain. Or if they've got it wrong it'll sodding piss down here!

Janelle said...

oh DD thank you thank you thank you...just make sure they get it effing right will you...? big kiss xxx j

tam said...

i'm a bit scared to do that dance now, since i made it rain on my books inside the garage. will try to establish true east this time...
hangsput, says the word veri.... does that mean you must wait patiently for that rain?

tam said...

or is that the mysterious rock where you must kill the black chicken?
perspe, says the next one. The sweat of the gods?

Janelle said...

Lori ann said...

So sorry to hear your rain is being so naughty, perhaps you should do as Karen once said and make a hole in your roof...or I know! air out your books in the sun...cheeky rain clouds...
OR, sing your rain song!

I love sleep like that, usually comes to me after a hard day of play...I'm so glad to hear you had a great time with your horse.
Stay Positive, sweet Janelli.
xoxoxoLove♥Lori

word veri : lickeolo??? if you do, will it rain?

Reluctant Memsahib said...

oh but you describe the panting heat so well. i stand in my garden as yet another storm approaches, winking lightening against a blackening sky and i scold: go away! GO AWAY! janelle needs you today. Not me. x

Angela said...

Maybe you should invite that film crew? The ones (Mr. Polanski, Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor) who came here to our famous SUN ISLAND expecting rain for their film scenes? At first, five days of sun in a row, and today -- rain and snow!! They seem to be pretty powerfully magical, but maybe they only knew that black chicken trick?? Does subdult mean something like subcult? Then all signs lead there, Janelle. No way out.

My rain dance was very successful - unfortunately I am yet to discover the magic charm that sends the dark clouds scudding over to you and stops them dumping their icy load on London.

I'll keep working on it...

karen said...

It feels like such a contrast to my world at the moment. Almost unimaginable.. how I wish that rain for you...

Glad you had a great riding trip. Loved the image of Dirk and his Irish drum.. those drums are amazing,if I'm thinking of the right kind of drum, of course!

Elizabeth said...

Maybe if you put something which shouldn't EVER get wet outside in the garden it would tempt the rain gods?

Reya Mellicker said...

I'll double up on the prayers for rain for you.

Can your horses do rain dances?

greenwords said...

Mmmm, I love a Snickers, your horse has good taste. Hope that rain comes soon.

Miranda said...

Glad you didn't burn the stables down...

Tessa said...

I dream people up all the time. But, hey, that's me. I'm dreaming rain for you, to cool your fevered brow and especially to cool your horses.

Janelle said...

Frances said...

Your weekend with the horses sounds awesome! Will ask the universe to send you some rain.

Chimera said...

So evocative and marvellous! thanks for sharing and I am not at all jelous (gnashes teeth!)
I shall do a rain dance around snicker bars for you.
much love

I love athumani's optimism. Wish I could send you all this rain we've been having here in Atlanta, together with all the whining soccer moms (me included) "Ugh! The games are cancelled AGAIN!" just for a change of perspective.

Your photos ROCK. I am there with you! That's what I love. And your words combine to make a symphony! :)
