The emotions of lockdown come and go, ebb and flow: disquieting and sometimes extreme; often softly cocooned in a safe quarantine bubble. I am having unusually vivid dreams. It can be hard to separate the dreams from reality. The world was in lockdown, but the Seasons still came. I find comfort in slowing down and surrendering to the unstoppable progression of Nature. Breaking waves are referred to as white horses. If you listen closely, the waves crashing sounds like hooves thundering along the ground. Here are my White Horses. Give in to their power. I hope you enjoy the ride!
