A movie I haven’t seen in years..a lovely little film about a lovely little horse who made everyone’s life a little better. It reminds me of the special bond some humans and horses had when they were in sync with one another. The story is really well told, the book having been written by Laura Hillebrand. She had what was diagnosed as Epstein Barr syndrome and spent a year in bed. With nothing else to occupy her time – other than sleeping – she wrote Seabiscuit. Maybe she related to the horse’s back story: thrown away as useless, despite a great pedigree and lots of heart.
That describes pretty much all the characters in the movie, so clearly fate brought them together to achieve great things and meet their full potential. Isn’t that what we’re put on this earth to do? I believe so.
If this pandemic ever gets under control, I want to go visit friends and family and really spend some quality time with them. Covid has made our world so small..like Ms. Hillebrand’s. I’m sure there must be a reason for it. I’ll get some good writing out of it, maybe..like Laura. But at what price? We shall see.
