The title of this post is brought to you by the movie the boy and I watched yesterday, while the rain poured down and while my muscles gradually stiffened into long strings of pain as a direct result of another riding lesson.
I love learning things, I really do, but I'm a smart cookie (if I do say so myself) and learning things is easy for me.
Book-learning things are easy, actually. I am not very coordinated, physically speaking, because of a tendency to view my body as nothing but a slightly awkward, unreliable, and poorly-designed transportation system for my brain. But no, I am going to learn to ride this horse, or die trying.
My sympathies are actually with the horse.
And, in case you haven't noticed, I have been so busy doing nothing that I don't want to write anything on the blog.
If you're looking for something to read, though, Sarah Dunant's new book "Sacred Hearts" was fantastic.
