Next to us, in the thick of all the traffic stopped at an intersection, is a horse! A pinto, all gussied up in wedding attire with an elaborately pompomed headdress and covered haunches. The rider is a master, keeping control and calming the horse midst the craziness (and he doesn’t even have his feet in stirrups). Believe me, traffic is loud and aggressive…and yet here we all are going our own ways.
This is a photo of a similarly attired animal. Horses are conditioned to stand in heavy traffic for hour upon hour during wedding processions. This horse and his partner have been standing near our gate with LOUD music blaring for two and a half hours, and they are still here (I am going to bed!)
So I am musing on this vision so I can relate it to you, since, of course, I have no camera, when I look to my right and see something even more extraordinary: An ELEPHANT. It is majestically walking down the noisy boulevard, rider on top, with no fanfare whatsoever.
