Fast Horses

Seeds X, 37

Seed: Fast Horses

I can’t remember where we were going but we were driving on a highway up a hill. That, I do remember. Oh, and the sign on the trailer in front of us:

Fast Horses
Slow Truck

We burst out laughing, and the idea stayed with me. Isn’t that what’s so about the human mind? Our thoughts go lickety-split just like fast horses, and our hearts and bodies can feel like slow trucks a lot of the time.

Do you know why? Thoughts travel, quite literally, at the speed of light. Emotions travel at the speed of water. And bodies, those dear vessels, travel at the speed of earth.

The next time your thoughts are out-stripping your feelings and your body, remember the sign on the back of the trailer and give yourself a break.

Be content,

Susan Corso
