Such an arresting image. A woman won’t leave her horse, Astro, as he slowly sinks in the mud. (Don’t worry, the horse survives!) Story and pics here. This photo immediately brought to mind two things: 1) that terrible scene in the Never-Ending Story where Atreyu loses Artax in the swamp of sadness and 2) a young adult short story by Margo Lanagan (fom her book Black Juice) called Singing My Sister Down (sent to me by my friend Kate) about a young girl sentenced to a slow, sinking death via tar flat. Powerful, resonant story about courage and forgiveness. Stayed with me for weeks.

Killer ear worm. (Hasidic hat with the gold chain ‘peyos’ is a nice touch.)
