Wild Horses of Nevada

Got lucky, getting within a few feet of these wild beauties that didn’t seem to mind me one bit. There is no zoom and this was the actual distance between me and a herd of wild horses. I would say there was about ten with several foals, which made it even more unusual being allowed so close. But on the other hand, coming to think of, animals do have a special relationship with me as if picking up the energy that I pose no threat.

What a beautiful experience today seeing those majestic beauties, so tough and resilient, grazing in the rain during yet another storm, rolling around in the dirt and playing, charging at each other in a friendly game, across the pasture.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Wow. I’d love to see wild horses.

    I shall be missing for a while… Travelling and not able to do the blog thing… I’ll catch up later.

    By the way, I heard a very good interview with a specialist on arthritis (on the radio). He said that while no human trials have been done, there is good reason to think that rubbing CBD oil into sore joints may alleviate some of the inflammation. Apparently trials in animal studies have shown significant improvements. I know people who have used it in arthritic dogs, and one or two people who have been prescribed CBD oil too. Worth looking into Rhapsody. 💕💕💕💕

    1. Thank you for sharing this my sister. I do have a CBD cream that I occasionally rub on and which helps. It’s just when the pain is in too many places and too wide spread that it becomes an issue. I need to find a bath so I can submerge myself in it 😉
