Out Stealing Horses

Posted by Christina Lynch on September 26, 2014 at 1:10 AM

Like most days, this one began with shoveling s%$t. I'm not being euphemistic--I cleaned out the horse pasture. It's a sisyphean task, but someone has to do it.

Then I met with a friend/new client who is beginning  delightful project about country life. I'm really excited to be helping her. Started a new freelance editing project about mass transit, painted some signs for the upcoming western film festival. Read a few chapters of "Out Stealing Horses." Reread Maxine Kumin's wonderful essay "Jicama Without Expectation." This is the kind of eclectic day I enjoy--and it's about 20 degrees cooler than it has been. The synapses are firing again!
