Keith and Stinky (and probably one of the Brownies), Mongolia 2017

There are times when riding a horse when it feels strange, out of rhythm — especially when in Mongolia, the horse may be chugging along but I am a few strides behind. Then I am just bumping along, dragged unwillingly through the momentum.

That is how the last few weeks have felt like. Me, following along with the never-stopping ticking clocks. Looking forward to any small opportunity to pull myself together again but never quite managing to.

I thought it was just Mongolia, and the melancholy that naturally comes after the end of the trip. But it is starting to feel like a funk, generally.

At some point I’ve got to get it together but just now I’d really like another afternoon by the river, another gallop up a hill, heck even another shit in the woods. Where do I go if all I know is I want to get away?
