Country Horse in Prince Edward Island
"The horse walked with a patient, uncomplaining gait. It had long grown used to being wherever it was put, but for once it felt it didn't mind this. Here, it thought, was a pleasant field. Here was grass. Here was a hedge it could look at. There was enough space that it could go for a trot later on if it felt the urge....It went for a little amble, and then, just for the hell of it, stopped ambling. It could do what it liked....
It also quite liked the notion of spending half an hour walking alternately a little bit to the left and then a little bit to the right, for no apparent reason. It didn't know whether the time between two and three would be best spent swishing its tail or mulling things over."

Rather the way I feel today, having quit my job. Only I still have a sprained ankle and it's pissing rain outside. Guess I'll stick to mulling things over for now.
