Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

I did this MEME last week when enigmaticblues  gaveme the list of -

James Marsters
Blakes 7

If you want to see what I said about those, then go here

Now jaded_jamie  has given me this list -

1: Horses
2: Countryside
3: LJ
4: Christianity
5: Dogs

So, if you want to read about those, check below the cut -

1: Horses

They are amazing creatures.

So intelligent, so loving.  They are used to being around humans, and sadly that does leave them open to abuse.

Although I love them, I do have a healthy respect for them - they are fast, heavy, and have a huge leg length ... but I still go back for more!

(In my previous post I did talk more about my riding experiences)

2: Countryside

I grew up in Greater London, so my idea of countryside was a park!

Then I moved to Cornwall and lived in a house surrounded by fields ... and then I started riding.

I now realise how great space is, it is evr chaging, but always the same.  I love seeing fields full of animals while I am driving, I love watching DJ and his friends wander around their home.  Trees are all shapes and sizes, and when you start looking at a local, natural track, you notice how many different types of leaves (etc) you can find!

Yes, Countryside is great - providing I don't have to deal with any of its 6 or 8 legged inhabitants!!

3: LJ

I got involvd in LJ when I was looking for a Beta for my first ever fic.  Having been told never to write at all (even school stuff), the ending of Buffy got me writing for the first time ever - and in looking into fan-fic, I needed a Beta ... So, LJ, here I am!

It took me the first year to work out the basics of the communities/"friending" etc - But now I love it.  I hate not being able to access my account.  I have looked at faceBook, and although I have an account I can't get to like it.

About half of my list I have regular contact with - and some of you I count as very dear friends.

I love the layout idea ... and the icons/mood themes etc.

4: Christianity

My garndparents and parents are Christians - so I was brought up very stricktly, and going to Church was part of my life.

However I have also come to realise that I had to amke my own personal commitment to God, which I did as a teen, as did both my brothers.

I believe 100% of The Bible, and as I said in my last post, am a member of the Plymouth Brethren.  however I have friends in all denominations ... and just agree to differ as to whether it is best to kneel to pray,a nd which hymn book to use!

Sadly so many people who attend Church, spend more times arguing about small details such as those, and lose track of the bigger picture - We have a God who loves us all ... and we should be happy to share our faith.

5: Dogs

"A man's best friend"

Tyey are a tie - but they are love.  They look at you with adoration, that you can't help but feel wanted and special.  In their eyes, there is no colour/race/religion ... you are loved.

As someone who is still suffering the effects of being bullied, that is an amazing experience to have.

We had a spate of equine abuse some years ago, that was horrific. Fortunately not seen around at present.
