Equus Passage

Equus Passage May 14, 2013

Equus: a horse, a beast used for carrying or pulling loads.

Passage: a slow, cadenced trot executed with great elevation of the feet and characterized by a moment of suspension before the feet strike the ground.

Yeah…a moment before the feet strike the ground, a brief second of suspension in the continuation of a walk. That is what I pray these words…of prayers, quotes, Bible verses, utterances by friends or myself…shared on Tuesdays, will be; an elevated lightness mid-step.


Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning,  that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure.
