The falconry place is booked until the end of November. I am SO disappointed…it was what I was looking forward to. The first time I went was such an amazing experience; remember, I had been fascinated with falconry ever since I was a kid, I had tons of books…it’s just not the type of thing that you can decide to do in the States. Once my life is a bit more settled, I think I want to apprentice with a falconer, if I can find someone fairly near.
What else is happening? Not much. I am bored to tears at work, with nothing to do. The Big Project has been shelved, and that’s all that I was holding on for. I’m playing in Flash today, working with animating a figure, just for something to keep my mind active. I thought I would go insane yesterday. I can handle being over-worked and under too much pressure, I can even thrive on it…but boredom is the worst thing in the world for me.
Perhaps I’ll start taking lessons again at a local stable. I miss horses too much, I miss my sweetie Robin. (Show name Prince of Thieves – Shire/TB cross) I started him, and then had to sell him when I moved here. He was a bit of an idiot, as all young horses are, but mostly he was wonderful. The stable was my sanctuary, my peaceful place, my outlet…I need it again.
