Life is about balance….


Welcome! Flying Horse Sense is Born! I decided to combine my love for horses and wisdom sayings into a sacred place where  inspirational quotes, music, poetry,  affirmations, art, dance, spiritual quotes, photography, books, and prayers will inspire and provoke deep soul reflection and spiritual growth!

Our site is named ” Flying Horse Sense”  after Pegasus

The Winged Horse of Greek Mythology


(ancient Greek Πήγασος / Pegasos, Latin Pegasus)


Pegasus is one of the well-known mythological creatures in Greek myth, and assumes his share of fame and nobility beside the gods, and heroes of myth and legend.

In Greek mythology, Pegasus is a winged lightning creature fathered by Poseidon, god of the sea, and Medusa, a mortal, and priestess of Athena’s temple. Poseidon was captivated by the great beauty of Medusa, and the couple foolishly consummated their love in the sacred Temple of Athena, the goddess of war, and strategy.

Pegasus was also a friend to the nine Muses, and was instructed by Zeus to transport lightning and thunder from Mount Olympus.

Symbolism of Pegasus

The symbols of Pegasus varies throughout time. This horse-god was associated with power, flight, speed, glory, loyalty, bravery, courage, wealth, wisdom, knowledge, poetry, creative sources that inspired writers, and poets, pottery, solar myths, and spiritual energy that allowed access to the realm of the gods on Mount Olympus.


This site is dedicated to my dad, Othon George  Mantzavinos, a great, virtuous, honest, and principled man who taught me to follow my heart, to be honest no matter what the consequences.

He earned his living by working an honest, plain and simple life.

He was  an embodiment of purity and truthfulness. 

I also discovered that he was a very compassionate and kind person and  that the most important thing that he had was us, his family.

Though he may never have said it out loud I know that he truly loved us

and was very proud of what we have become.

We are who we are now because we had a father like him.

He was very strict as a father but that’s only because he cared for us. To his friends he was a very kind person and was always ready to help. He always had a solution to every problem and had his ways of making things simple. He never asked anybody for help but he was a very generous philanthropic, compassionate man, and he never wanted to be acknowledged for anything he did.

When he helped he simply helped.

My father,  never broke his promise once , he stayed true to his word, he did what he said. He never stooped to any meanness or evil. He never liked false  flattery,  he stuck to his  principles  with whatever challenge would come his way. 

He was a safe custodian of truth and justice.


  He showed strength until the end and still had some enlightening words for me. I made some huge changes to my life and I owe it to my father’s encouragement, strength and tough love advice…

See Dad… I listened….it just took me a while…:)

I miss him and his amazing, wicked  sense of humor!

 I am honored and humbled to be one of his daughters!!

“Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)”

  You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
And back in the saddle

You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isn’t over

The pressure is on
You feel it
But you’ve got it all
Believe it

When you fall get up
Oh oh…
And if you fall get up
Oh oh…

Tsamina mina
Cuz this is Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
This time for Africa

Listen to your god

This is our motto
Your time to shine
Dont wait in line
Y vamos por Todo

People are raising
Their Expectations
Go on and feed them
This is your moment
No hesitations

Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way
Believe it

If you get down
Get up Oh oh…
When you get down
Get up eh eh…

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
This time for Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

About Native American Heritage Month

Information courtesy of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior

What started at the turn of the century as an effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose.

One of the very proponents of an American Indian Day was Dr. Arthur C. Parker, a Seneca Indian, who was the director of the Museum of Arts and Science in Rochester, N.Y. He persuaded the Boy Scouts of America to set aside a day for the “First Americans” and for three years they adopted such a day. In 1915, the annual Congress of the American Indian Association meeting in Lawrence, Kans., formally approved a plan concerning American Indian Day. It directed its president, Rev. Sherman Coolidge, an Arapahoe, to call upon the country to observe such a day. Coolidge issued a proclamation on Sept. 28, 1915, which declared the second Saturday of each May as an American Indian Day and contained the first formal appeal for recognition of Indians as citizens.

The year before this proclamation was issued, Red Fox James, a Blackfoot Indian, rode horseback from state to state seeking approval for a day to honor Indians. On December 14, 1915, he presented the endorsements of 24 state governments at the White House. There is no record, however, of such a national day being proclaimed.

The first American Indian Day in a state was declared on the second Saturday in May 1916 by the governor of New York. Several states celebrate the fourth Friday in September. In Illinois, for example, legislators enacted such a day in 1919. Presently, several states have designated Columbus Day as Native American Day, but it continues to be a day we observe without any recognition as a national legal holiday.

In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations, under variants on the name (including “Native American Heritage Month” and “National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month”) have been issued each year since 1994.

The story of the relationship of Native peoples and horses is one of the great sagas of human contact with the animal world. Native peoples have traditionally regarded the animals in our lives as fellow creatures with which a common destiny is shared. When American Indians encountered horses—which some tribes call the Horse Nation—they found an ally, inspiring and useful in times of peace, and intrepid in times of war. Horses transformed Native life and became a central part of many tribal cultures.

By the 1800s, American Indian horsemanship was legendary, and the survival of many Native peoples, especially on the Great Plains, depended on horses. Native peoples paid homage to horses by incorporating them into their cultural and spiritual lives, and by creating art that honored the bravery and grace of the horse.

The glory days of the horse culture were brilliant but brief, lasting just over a century. The bond between American Indians and the Horse Nation, however, has remained strong through the generations.

Elvis Crespo (Suavemente)

I love Merengue!!

Suavemente - Suavemente

Suavemente, besame
que yo quiero sentir tus labios
besandome otra vez.

Suavemente, besame
que yo quiero sentir tus labios
besandome otra vez.

(Suave) Besame , besame
(Suave) Besame otra vez
(Suave) Que yo quiero sentir tus labios
(Suave) Besandome otra vez
(Suave) Besa, besa
(Suave) Besame un poquito
(Suave) Besa , besa , besa,
(Suave) Besame otro ratito

(Pequeña , hechate pa’ca)

Cuando tu me besas
me siento en el aire
por eso cuando te veo
comienzo a besarte.
Y si te despegas,
yo me despierto
de ese rico sueño,
que me dan tus besos
(Besame, Que yo quiero sentir tus labios)
Besando me otra vez
Suavemente ese coro!
Es la coz (Que yo quiero sentir tus labios)
Besando me otra vez
Besame suavecito ,
sin prisa y con calma
dame un beso bien profundo, que me llegue al alma
dame un beso mas, que en mi boca cabe
dame un beso despacito, dame un beso suave

(besame, que yo quiero sentir tus labios)
Besandome otra ves
Suavemente ese coro
(besame) es la cosa (que yo quiero sentir tus labios)
besando me otra ves

(Suave) Tus labios tienen
(Suave) Ese secreto
(Suave) yo beso y beso
(Suave) y no lo encuentro
(Suave) un beso suave
(Suave) es lo que anhelo
(Suave) un beso tuyo
(Suave) es lo que quiero.

(Suave) Yo me pregunto
(Suave) que tienen tus besos
(Suave) trato de escaparme
(Suave) y me siento preso
(Suave) besa, besa, besame un poquito
(Suave) besa, besa, besa, besame otro ratito.

(Suave) Besame , besame
(Suave) besame otra vez
(Suave) que yo quiero sentir tus labios
(Suave) besandome suavemente,
(Suave) tiernamente
(Suave) cariñosamente
(Suave) dulcemente,
(suave) besame mucho
sin prisa y con calma
dame un beso ondo que me llegue al alma
acercate, acercate no tengas miedo
solamente yo te digo, una cosa quiero
(suave) besame
pequeña, cojelo (suave)


Dance like no one is watching


We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t old enough and we’ll be more content when they are.

After that we’re frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with.

We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able togo on a nice vacation, when we retire.

The truth is, there’s no better time to be happy than  right now.

If not now, when?

Happy Birthday Michael…..August 29th, 1958
