No yummy fruit pies today! Just experienced a slow and frustrating new trail. It’s fun and fast to do something over and over again, but new stuff can be a bit stressful; at least how I go about it.
This is where my “donkey” brain comes out. I never really thought about how smart donkeys were until I tried helping my neighbor evacuate theirs during a wildfire.
Donkeys can over-think things. Sure, they can follow other donkeys or horses, but if they get to actually think about what they are being forced to do, they can stop and refuse to move.
That was me today!
See the dotted line near the bottom? That was me stopping and walking or going snail pace. The trail was tricky: switchbacks and slippery dirt. Arghh.
