Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony. ~ Thomas Merton

Happy Acceptance

Harmony is a term arising from music and it describes the process of playing or singing two or more different notes at the same time to form chords.

Usually this produces sounds which are pleasing to hear and so the term is also used in a non-musical sense to describe people or a system working together in a pleasing way.

Two different notes coming together to form something pleasing.  Cricket and Bleu.

I appreciate all the alliterative suggestions for renaming my blog.  Honestly, I'm not a terribly alliterative person.  And I often wonder how successful this program would have been if Mr. Parelli had been born into this world as Wayne or Dwight.  But I digress . . .

What I want is harmony - difference coming together in a pleasing way.  Whether that means progressing with my two very different horses to create something beautiful in our relationship or if it means exploring beyond Parelli and finding congruence with other approaches.

So here we go, finding harmony . . .

Actually all the comments helped. I've wanted to rename the blog for some time but couldn't figure out just what I wanted. The suggestions helped me figure out what I wanted, even though I went with something different.

Glad y'all like it. It struck a chord with me when I decided upon it. With the name change, I decided to spiff up the layout a little. The title graphic is just a picture I snapped with my iPhone. Wasn't until I uploaded it that I realized Cricket and Bleu are "posed" in harmony. How appropriate!
