Quote for the week

“The greatest gift you can give another is the purity of your attention.
” —Richard Moss
In the past the DOR is often distracted when she is out with us horses. We have teamed up to eliminate that behavior...if she is distracted we do something to draw back her attention to us. She doesn't like it when she is working with us and she doesn't have our entire attention, well neither do we. Giving your partner, be the animal or human, or full attention tells them they are important, that they matter, that nothing can replace them.
The DOR is making an extra effort right now to give me her attention, with nothing else in her mind, while she does my therapy. When she does this the exercises get better results, when she doesn't we both have to work a lot harder that we should. She is also just coming out and sitting with me or Sir Royal Pain, doing nothing other than being with us and watching what we do. I think she has been trying to read our minds-that isn't going so well since all I think about is food since I am on a diet and since Sir Royal Pain thinks he is a stud his thoughts are xxx rated.
So how about this week we all try to give the purity of our attention to every creature we have an interchange with.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

Haha! Boys - sex and food. Doesn't matter if they're geldings.

Good luck on the diet.

thanks for the quote - I will use it the next time I'm in a meeting with people paying lots of attention to their cell phones and minimal attention to what's going on in the meeting. we have meetings coming up this next month, and I plan to put this quote on the first slide.
