What’s this all about?

When I was a young girl, I always wanted a horse.  As I grew up, the longing for one never passed; and now, as an adult, I have become a dead horse. 

 You may be asking yourself, how do I become a dead horse? 

 It is simple really.   Find something you enjoy doing very much.  For me, it is playing music.  Now, keep doing that and get nowhere with it until it feels like you are beating a dead horse. 

 Once this horse is good and dead and beaten down, you can begin your journey into dead horsed-om.  Please note, this will not happen overnight.  It is a long path of disappointment, rejection and longing.

 Dead horse status comes with the knowledge that the future is bright just the way it is.  It will no longer matter that you aren’t famous, recognized for your craft, or, god forbid, people don’t like what you create. 


It is with this realization that you can deflect from the unvarying beatings and transcend into dead horse status. 

Finally, you can rise from the ashes and do what makes you happy regardless of the status quo or what hipster’s term as “lame”. 

 Those tarnished hopes and dreams will be replaced with a realization that you can be content just doing your thing.  Whatever that thing may be…

 But, if you haven’t gotten this far, and that horse is still kicking, flog it for several more years.   Eventually, we will see you on the other side.

 Lastly, and I think most importantly – please don’t misinterpret- I am a vain show donkey on parade; but, I am also a dead horse.
