A bit belated, but none the less heartfelt.
I took this photo on our way into Fort Stockton two days ago and it seemed so appropriate . . . traveling through this landscape you can’t help but think about the early white settlers who traveled this land on horseback, thinking to make it their own.
Some would say they accomplished their goal, but gazing into the distance, seeing nothing but cacti and mesquite and tumbleweed stretching to the horizon and beyond it is clear that no one can truly make this land their own . . . we can but pass our way through it and create a few strongholds where we can find shelter and hunker down in the face of of the wind.
