For me there is nothing quite like the feeling of freedom I get from riding a horse. Out there in the fields at a trot or even better, a full gallop,with the wind in my hair, it feels wonderful. The horse and I are the only things in the world. But if I had my druthers I wouldn’t have to do this work of mine, I could spend every day out on the ranch. It would be good to have a job out among the horses; that would be perfect for me.
Still, I don’t want to sound like a whiner because my work at the Heating and A/C contractor is quite good. They pay me well, I get a lot of paid time off, nice benefits, and once per year they send out a serviceman to tune up our heating and cooling system. So I don’t want to sound like I despise my job. in the Heating and AC manufacturing plant, because it is absolutely great. Well, maybe not “really great” because assembling air conditioning system parts just can’t compare to riding horseback across the plains. If the Heating and A/C work didn’t pay me so well I absolutely would never get to ride a horse at all, because nothing about horses is cheap.
That is one of life’s little ironies, I guess. I want to quit the Heating and A/C plant to go ride horses, but without the work, I can’t afford to ride horses… For now I will just stick with my system. On weekdays I am all about the Heating and A/C, and the weekends belong to the horses.
