Today’s post is in support of World Suicide Prevention Day 2018. WSPD began in 2003, in 2010 I knew nothing about it.
The theme of WSPD 2018 is “working together to prevent suicide.” Please connect, care and communicate about suicide with your personal inner circle if need me.
Mara B and I dedicated our ride this morning in memory of Benjamin Curry Stassen.
Today’s ride was a dedicated ride for Paul B who is recovering from some major surgery. Yesterday I told Paul that Mara B and I would be riding for him this morning so to have a Monarch along with us was pretty neat.
Mara and I had a peaceful quiet solo ride and soaked in the calm stillness of the morning.
Our unique sighting was the ash and remains left from a small fire.
We concluded the ride without the butterfly but are hoping good things are around the corner for all of us!
Mara B was a very good girl.
Anika who enjoys riding lessons on Mondays at River Brink brought horse treats for her pals today! It was super sweet and made my day.
What a stash for the horses! Plus Mara B has a new ‘Quiet Ride Fly Mask’ that we tried out today and I’m glad we did, the gnats were certainly around.
Kim and Rio rode with us and we dedicated our ride to Matthew and Joseph today.
The peace of nature was soothing.
Dedicated ride for HP today. Our dear friend of forty plus years, Harold sailed away early this morning. Always gracious, kind and happy, Harold loved his family, sailing, nature and his yard, chuckles, beer and cheese corn! Time on today’s ride was to honor his life and memory.
