Horses in the Background

I was born with an affinity for horses. They were the all-consuming obsession of my childhood and have been the abiding passion of my adulthood. My recent life has been such that horses have sometimes taken a backseat to everything else. Sometimes they're a little more prominent, sometimes less.

I took this photo last night and as I was looking at it this morning, I was struck that this image is a metaphor for the last decade of my life. No matter what new, distracting, interesting or more urgent things are in the foreground of my days, there are always horses in the background.
