Well today came dark and rainy, at 6:15 there was quite a storm going on outside of my camper with sheets of rain and constant thunder followed promptly with bright lightning! The 10 minute drive to the Parelli Ranch was a little bit longer due to my almost non-existent visibility. All I could think about was storm chasers and the movie "Twister"... Once I arrived at the ranch things were happening very quickly as people went about their business so they could scurry back inside out of the rain! Today we were treated to an hour long Q&A with none other than the great Linda Parelli. We sure did cover a lot of ground during the discussion that turned in to an hour and a half! I can't believe that I actually spoke with Linda what an amazing thing. Not to mention that I was able to create a coherent sentence and ask her several questions! Life is good. It is truly inspiring to me to see how Linda can handle people in a group and direct the flow of things in such a natural and palatable way! She is really and truly a person to aspire too. We got to watch some interesting dvds and also have a Q&A with some of the mastery students- this was hosted by Lee Palmer. It was great to hear about some of the up's and downs and have some questions answered! As I write this in the student lounge Pat Parelli just drove up in his shiny Lincoln Pick-up truck. I am still getting used to all of this, sometimes I forget and then I realize that I am here. This is what I have dreamt of for the past several years. Oh my gosh this is so amazing! I want to share this with all of you guys. If you are thinking about coming down here, do it, don't let your if, ands or buts stop you!
On that note I'll sign off for now, until next time,
Stay Savvy and Keep it Natural.
