Consider the horseback rider as he negotiates rises and falls in uneven landscape.
While the rider holds the reigns and his will determines which way the horse will go, the horse must agree to abide by the rider's decision.
The rider will feel the ground under him, though the horse feels the wet ground beneath its hooves and the salt spray splashing its muscular legs.
The rider will feel that he moves, though the horse carries them both at speed.
Both rider and horse, married in a picture of powerful elegance as they ride together, each separate, each joined.
United in a common direction for no reason but the sheer joy of the going.
