Have you ever had any licks to the head?
I’m not talking about the ones where you bump your head in a doorway or on the underside of the coffee table.
I’m talking about the ones where there’s a multimillion-dollar fireworks display in your head and everything goes black.
Well, I have. If you answered no, I’ve had enough to use your share.
I took one last winter and, while Earth is still in its proper rotation, ever since I’ve been reading like a wild man.
It’s as though something got jarred around up there and said, “Here, try this!”
I’ve been going to the library here in Ignacio. What a nice bunch of folks, even though the first time I went in they looked at me like they thought I’d mistaken it for the “feed, saddle and tack” store.
They’ve taken me under their wing and helped me find what I was looking for, and have even got some books for me that they didn’t have from somewhere else. Many thanks to those folks.
Try reading a book today; it’s good for your brain. I sure hope this next horse don’t drop his head and kick real high because this philosophizing is kind of fun.
Watch yore topknot ...
Tom James was riding horses before he could walk. He currently hangs his hat in Ignacio. Reach him at email@example.com. The topknot, by the way, is the last knot tied on a pack saddle.
