I have what I call a parallel life. This isn’t some Fringe-worthy crossing-over hocus pocus, but rather just an escape into an imaginary world where I indulge in some things I love, which I don’t get the chance to in my current life (no regret though, life’s too short).
I have this image as my wallpaper and it reminds me everyday of that other life. In it, I live in the English countryside and ride my horse at dawn in the morning mist. I wear a Barbour coat and worn-in Aigle lace up boots, and have a leisurely gallop next to my neighbor’s vegetable patches (yes, I’ll remember to shut the fences).
One of my goals is to have these two lives, the one I’m working hard to make a reality, and the one in this picture, merge into one. Now wouldn’t that be sweet.
