Today and Tomorrow

“Riding Bareback”

“Rest easy today and live your dreams, for we do not know what tomorrow may bring.”~M #Quote #Encouragement #Wisdom JustBelieve #HopeLives

What are you doing in the midst of the quarantines, stay at home orders, shut down of businesses, limiting of non-essential travel and just all around craziness to stay sane?

This picture is my daughter riding her horse at the barn. It’s a place we can go to escape for a while. Family is important during this time and making memories is still possible and essential. Our love for others should have no bounds.

While it often feels that many of our freedoms are slowly being taken away little by little, I leave you with this.

“When riding a horse, we borrow freedom.” – Helen Thomson #quote

Godspeed my friends. Now what will you do to today? Tomorrow?

Freedom Rolling

Freedom RollsThere is a freedom when the tires are rolling over dirt and the only sound you hear is the wind in your ears. ~M

If I can bicycle, I bicycle. ~David Attenborough

I have always struggled to achieve excellence. One thing that cycling has taught me is that if you can achieve something without a struggle it’s not going to be satisfying. ~Greg LeMond

Cycling can be lonely, but in a good way. It gives you a moment to breathe and think, and get away from what you’re working on. ~David Byrne

 If biking is your passion, set aside time to enjoy a good ride. ~Patrick Dempsey

What is your passion and what sets you free?

Rodeo Fun!

Spent the day at the Roy Pioneer Rodeo in Roy, Washington with family.  Roy is a small town, very small, southeast of Seattle and Tacoma. I grew up going to rodeos in Idaho and Oregon and the small ones always seem to be the most fun.

These are some pictures taken with my smartphone throughout the event and edited using the app Snapseed. All photos are copyright of Mark Schutter ©2014. 

Enjoy the pics and what are you doing this Labor Day weekend?
