If someone was to describe me, they probably say I'm eclectic. You can't pigeon-hole me. I don't fit in any molds. I like that about myself.
I have called myself a small-town-city-girl with a cowgirl heart. Or a cowgirl with a city girl vibe who wants to live in a small town again. Whatever. I may be frequently coated in dirt and actually like the smell of horse sweat, but I also love having a fabulous hairdo and wearing a great pair of designer jeans and heels. I have an appreciation for art, culture, and the finer things in life. But given a choice, I'd rather live in a rustic log cabin next to a horse corral.
I have worn these 1960's vintage stilettos on an uneven cobblestone street in Greenwich Village in New York City, just because it was NYC and I wanted to.
I am comfortable in these boots. But not only because they are physically cushy, but because when I wear them, I am emotionally connected to the world of horses, which is so dear to my heart.
I love this horse. Stocky, western, the history of the spotted hide. A little Wyoming, a little Montana. A little lemonade and fried chicken.
I also love this horse. Flashy, refined, spirited energy. A little upstate New York with champagne and brie.
I love this duo. They are down-home, heartfelt, twangy, and simple.
But I also love this band from the UK. They are soulful, electronic, and modern.
How can one be a little bit of everything and all of nothing? Am I walking a tightrope between two worlds? Could it mean I might be confused, or don't know who I am?
Interestingly, I personally have never been more clear about who I am and what I want. In the past two years, I have learned more about myself through my re-entry into the world of horses. As I have blogged about this journey, I have discovered that like me, my blogging has changed a little, grown a lot, and now more honestly reflects who I am. From being a girly-girl and sharing my favorite western attire, to grooming caked mud off my hairy horse and checking his sarcoid scab.
Thank you for letting me share all these different sides of myself with you.....
