Entry 610

DSC_0695Entry 610: A buffalo stands off in the distance. I passed him a while back, he did not notice. He stood there with a bird upon his back. I am closer now, must take pictures. He will be none the wiser.

I stopped, had to change my lens. The bird flew away and now the buffalo faces me. His gaze fixated on me as if to make sure that I made no sudden movements. I was not close enough to capture his attention. I had no made no noise. So, how did he know that I was there. Sixth sense? Animal sense? It was probably the prairie dogs. Of course they ratted me out. Damn prairie dogs. DSC_0701I stood my ground. He stood his. I snapped my picture and now he is turning his back towards me. The threat has clearly been lifted. Either that or he feels I’m too far away to make it worth an effort. Guess I will carry on my way.

Thank you, Mr. Buffalo.DSC_0723

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Been Awhile….

DSC_5942HI, all.  I know that it seems like it has been forever since my last post.  I cannot even remember when.  I know that I could look, but it will confirm what we already know.  It has been quite a while.

My brain has been so overwhelmed that it has been a bit difficult to concentrate.  I’ve not touched my camera in well over a month.  I’ve not really edited any new photos.  It has been something, but I will not whine.

Since my last post, I’ve successfully completed my first major art show.  Though, it was not my first…it was the biggest out of the three.  I am quite happy with the outcome.  It was non-stop from the time that the show started.  I didn’t sell any of my big pieces, but I was selling so many smaller pieces that eventually I lost count and was shocked when I counted my earnings.  I didn’t bring back my actual investment, but the amount I did clear was much higher than I ever anticipated.  There was so much positive feedback and several people came back around a couple of times.  Cards were taken, so we shall see.

I know that my investment will not have to be as much next year, but I’m unsure whether I will be submitting an entry for it.  Part of me wants to and the other part struggles.  A year seems so far away and unlike this year…well, I’m unsure what next year holds in store.

This month I will be a vendor a charity event for one of the therapy barns, Courage Rock.  Two of the horses from the farm, Acers and Gracie Bay, now reside there.  Kim is an amazing woman and her program is designed to bring horses and vets together to therapeutic healing.   I’m looking really forward to setting up there and I hope to bring in enough revenue to make a decent donation to the Courage Rock program.  I am staying positive.  DSC_5950Next on my agenda is finishing school.  I have just three weeks remaining for this class and then just two more classes before I complete my bachelors.  With that said, I’ve been working my grad school applications.  Personal statements are a requirement for the schools that I’m considering it and they all require multiple parts…..they’re taking a bit to get done.  That is good, though. I’m actually putting thought into them and not rushing.  I hope that it has a successful outcome.

I think that is about it for news on my end.  As for the picture. I went to a buffalo ranch here in Indiana.  It is a family owned business and one of the children is a Hippotherapist out at the farm.  This beautiful girl is her brother’s horse.  Her name is Chase and she is the most beautiful and loving thing.  She’s a Rocky Mountain and just purely to enjoy and admire.  There is something wrong with her leg(s) that prevents her from being rideable, but I don’t remember all the details.

Anyway, that is all that is going on in my world. I hope yours is a bit more entertaining and that you enjoy the pictures.
