Let the good times roll

"One of the greatest tragedies in the world is wasted pain."

--Archbishop Fulton Sheen

“Life is such unutterable hell, solely because it is sometimes beautiful. If we could only be miserable all the time, if there could be no such things as love or beauty or faith or hope, if I could be absolutely certain that my love would never be returned: how much more simple life would be. One could plod through the Siberian salt mines of existence without being bothered about happiness. Unfortunately the happiness is there. There is always the chance (about eight hundred and fifty to one) that another heart will come to mine. I can't help hoping, and keeping faith, and loving beauty. Quite frequently I am not so miserable as it would be wise to be.”

--T.H. White

I love this sketch. It is such fun to see a huge animal such as this horse take a dust bath. You captured the agitation, and the resulting dust perfectly.
