'A Surprising Encounter'
The property appears to be smaller than it is. Must be the angle. Before I leave the place, I want to find the big mill wheel Zoran spoke about. I ride back down, following the road. It was so warm inside the restaurant that I find outside to be even colder than before lunch. But not for long. I hope.
And, indeed! The huge wheel is where I was told it would be. Even though its side is covered in ice, the wheel keeps turning. Tired wood is singing a song while making its neverending rounds. It feels like watching a good movie over again and again. A winter tale could easily be filmed here.
The movement is what doesn't allow the wheel to freeze. If it was to stop, the ice would cover it quickly. I love to hear the sound it makes. It is quite different from the sound of the small wheel, the one I've found before. This one is somewhat deeper. It makes me sleepy. But, it could also be the lunch. :-)
For a moment, I lose myself staring at the turning wheel. Time passes by, I feel so good that I have no cause to move. Then I realize it's quite late.
I turn away to sit on my motorcycle. I'm not alone anymore! Those ponies walked up to me when I wasn't looking. What a surprise! Who would expect them to walk 300, maybe 400m, where they were grazing when I arrived? This is heartwarming. I didn't see them coming, I didn't hear them coming but here they are out of the blue. For some unknown reason they came to the frozen wheel and now gently uncover the grass under the frost and slowly graze.
Some moments are memorable. This is one of them. Was it my whispering? Did they remember the man with a motorcycle from before lunch? They seem to be really smart and friendly. I wish I have something to feed them. Living beings are much more interconnected than we realize or comprehend. That very thought dwells in my mind as I sit on the bike and leave this place of wonder...
Enjoy your day! :-)
