The miscellaneous writings of Mark Bridgeman

My Friend and his Horse

I just love moody photographs like this.  Old moody photographs are better because they speak across time of different conditions, adversity and tell us how far we’ve come.

Anyhow a few years ago in the warm, hot and wet summer of June 2014 I took this particular photo of my friend and one of his horses nuzzling his pocket, asking politely for another mint.

Of course he got it, horses love sugar and can smell it from a mile away.

What I love is the look of blind acceptance, contentment and kindness on the face of my friend.  It’s easy to imagine that both he and the horse are one with all things.  It’s a moment in time that has become timeless.

We’re all one, infinite expressions of the same one thing.  That one thing of course is the universe and for want of a better term ‘God’

The more definite the idea you have of God, the more incorrect it’s likely to be, that’s because you are attached to it, it’s become an idol.

“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.”

Alan W. Watts
