a complete stranger just made me cry on the phone. in a great way.
i called to find out about a riding evaluation / lesson and got an
unexpected update on my beloved first riding instructor, jennifer jones,
who i have not seen or heard about in well over 15 years. miss jones
visited bramblewood last summer, giving her seal of approval on the
former foxcroft farms. she's 80 years old, just stopped riding, and is
still living in the UK (since leaving the states to care for her mother
many years ago). her bright blue eyes still sparkle.
love that the stranger thought to tell me that.
update to an update: that same stranger made me cry again. with this. i can't wait to be back at this place. it sounds like, despite the many changes to the land over the years, the spirit at Foxcroft / Bramblewood is the same. i'm looking forward to feeling that.
