forbidden horse

He was seriously overweight, kept telling how good he was and trying to sell me lessons, but he got my sympathy anyway, for riding his horse right there in the center of this village,
very near the city where you get fined for throwing chewing gum on the street.
I even found the sun on this grey day,
and smelled the ocean,
while soaking the weed for my first home cooked seaweed soup.
