Horses and Chickens

Sometimes life gets the best of us and stress takes over. I truly believe that laughter is good medicine.  If I find myself being bogged down with life I try to step back and notice life around me.  There just might be that brief moment where something funny can help get me back on track.  Here is a journal entry from years ago.

Just at the moment when I need something in my life to make me laugh….

I was having dinner with some friends last night on their farm in Prospect.  It’s a very beautiful part of town with a lot of land.  The whole east side of their house is enormous windows so that they can look out onto the couple of acres that hold their wildflower garden and a pond, that looks the size of a lake.  

We were sitting in their house last night having a wonderful meal, drinking incredible wine that they had just brought up from the wine cellar and we saw something go past the window.  

A few seconds later, we saw one of the horses pass by again, with a chicken running along side of it.   WHAT?!!!!   All three of us sat in silence for a couple of seconds, letting that sight sink in, before we just burst out laughing.

The sight of a horse and a chicken “having a trot ” together was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time.  We thought we were hallucinating from the wine or something.  Took us a minute to realize that we had really seen it.  I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.  It was so good for me. 

We ended the evening by having to collect all of the chickens that had gotten out of their pen and spooked the horses. But what a great time that was.  I need more nights like that in my life.
