Why Horses are Better Than People

It’s COLD here in lower Michigan today. Here’s a pic of Clifford standing out in the pasture. He’s been digging for grass.

Tonight I am watching “Changing Lanes”, a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck. The cast also includes two of my favorites: William Hurt and the wonderful Toni Colette. The story is about two individuals who meet in a car accident. It sends them on separate routes of personal crisis. Recoiling from the escalating aftershock, they set out to screw each other over in a bevy of methods that are painful to watch.

In “Changing Lanes” both the characters eventually come to their senses; acknowledging their mistakes and recognizing their humanity. They do the right thing! If only life could be like that.


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!

    If everyone had a horse I think the world would be a better place. Being around them makes us better people.
