Peace and quiet and horses

I am happy to be here in rural Austria for the next month, especially after  hearing  about tonight's terrorist attack in the Beer Sheva Central Bus Station.

I went for my first walk in the woods and in the countryside today.
The silence was deafening.
The most exciting part was watching this beautiful horse rolling on the earth.

She saw me and got up and came over to the electric fence to say hello.

Later, on Am Kreuzweg road that leads up to my host community, two more lovely horses came by.

Should have asked for a ride, no?

Our thoughts too are on the sad events. Glad you are one less dear to worry about for now, Dina!

The long manes are what really catch my eye.

I hope things calm down in your usual neck of the woods.

If you see them again, DO ask for a ride! I am glad you are there in Austria and not at the Beer Sheva Central Bus Station.

So glad you are safe. I've been reading the Israel Times reports and have been worried about you!

Friends, thanks for all your good wishes!

Merisi, actually the Franziskusgemeinschaft is in Burgenland. Yes, I am really enjoying it, the members are wunderbar.
