The Words…

DSC_2163I was once reminded that our words are always out there.  Once we put them on the internet, that is it.  Whether we delete them from the original posting or not, they can always be found.

I have been thinking about that a lot lately.  Like a lot, even for me.  I have also been thinking about how one my uncle’s told me once that i had become too different.  The way I thought, my thinking process…it had become too different.  I now sit and wonder the implications of that statement.

I have had a lot of thoughts and I’ve said a lot of words.   I used to think that I never said anything that I didn’t mean, but now I wonder if that is true.  There are so many psychological aspects to why we do and say things that we do.  I am sure that mine came from a place of meaning at the time, but now…looking back, they stand with more question than they did at the time.  Hindsight, am I right?

I won’t delve into all that right now.  I’ve just been thinking about my old blog post and whether they represent what I want them to.  What I thought was me?  I know deleting them may be pointless. Maybe be moot.  Still, I don’t know.  Just bouncing thoughts for now.

The picture above is Picasso.  He is a wild mustang in the basin in Colorado.  He was the first to greet me when I entered the basin.  Let me know I was on the right course, because it took me a while to find it.  The directions failed me, go figure.  The “Verizon go anywhere” apparently has its limitations.  Always has its limitations, or I’m just really good at finding those places that Verizon doesn’t go.

Anyway, at the time Picasso was a lone bachelor.  From my understanding he was ran out of his herd.  The younger generation.  I don’t know what his status is today, I was hoping to make it back there this year to see if he was still about and to spend more time in the basin.  Here’s to hoping that is still an option as we maneuver through our current reality.

Until the next time.  Enjoy the picture.

Wild Stangs

DSC_0162 (2)As mentioned before, I have an insane amount of pictures to wade through.  I also have quite the amount of pictures uploaded to WordPress and I either need to delete some, or I need to upgrade my package.  I’ve not decided which yet.  I keep trying to decide the best course of action for me and how to revamp what I’ve got going on.  The most I’ve accomplished….finally getting a portion of my pictures worked through.

I have finished two sets of my wild horse photos.  This guy is from the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  I’m not sure his name,  he lives with four other guys in a pasture that is separated from the bigger herds that I’ve seen.  Painted Deserted is the only horse I know for sure, but he’s pretty easy to pick out…he’s the only paint in the group.  This guy looks like a Bucky, but I don’t know for sure.  There is also a Red Roan and from what I know of Roans, this guy could be one but there was a fourth horse that I never saw.  Prairie Dancer…maybe.  Or Pat & Mike……   Maybe a Prairie Dancer, I can see that.  Either way, he’s a beautiful mustang.

That is really where my heart has been lately.  The wild mustangs and burros of the west.  I would like to do something similar to Mr. Hyde.  My land would never be as massive as his.  The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary consists of tens of thousands of acres.  I would settle for enough to have a small herd.  Some that would be free for the rest of their lives, or at least the rest of mine.  Maybe break one, or two, I don’t know.  Right now that is a cheap wine dream on a pond water budget.  Until then, I will just stalk them with my camera.  I’m not sure where the next adventure will take me.  They are all over.  Maybe back to Colorado. A less popular location apparently has a 150 possible, I saw four….that is unacceptable and there are a ton more in the Sand Basin that I didn’t get to see.  Who knows.  We’ll see where the road takes me.

Until then, I hope you enjoy this picture.

Live, Laugh, Love, and Let it Ride.

Wild and Free

DSC_0211 (2)I feel guilty that I’ve not posted in a while.  There is no real good excuse other than I’ve just not wanted to.  I could go over the long list of reasons why, but they are neither here nor there.  They are reasons from a brain that never shuts off and a soul that constantly watches the numbers.  It also comes from a girl that has thousands upon thousands of pictures yet to edit and a spirit that has grown wearier than normal and is easily overwhelmed more than she used to be.

I had all these plans and goals. I always do and I’ve failed miserably to date.  I will not make promises, but there will be another post soon.  For now, I hope this one grabs your attention.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
