Dream Horses

For man, as for flower and beast and bird,
the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.

-- D. H. Lawrence, Apocalypse

The photo was taken late this afternoon, on my way back from upstate NY. The horses caught my eye as I drove past; I immediately had to find a place to turn around so I could come back, tiptoe through a snowbank, and simply watch them. They were so beautifully still, so dreamlike, so part of the wintry world.
