Every summer, I go to a dude ranch in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado where I have access to their ponies twenty-four hours a day. My daily routine is to ride Monte, my favorite pony, to a picnic area next to Lemon Lake. Monte lazily grazes while I eat my lunch. I take in the beauty of the lake and mountains and breathe the crisp clean mountain air. Monte looks up at me and laughs, as though he knows what I am thinking. I laugh back. He lazily goes back to his grazing. I go back to my thinking.
