Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys...

willie nelson and waylon jennings

the sad cowboy story

what is my story?
i aim to find the answer
i live this old life
out west
where new brave thinkers
carve out a living
from dirt and promise
driven by tintypes
of mothers long dead
and a heart full of memories
of a life our bones know
for time eternal
i birth the images
one by one
and tell the story
the story of me
and catch the tail fin
of the old west.

Dearest Milady,
what a pity I can't open the links.

Today in old Europe we can hear the wedding bells of Ridgway are ringing! Its exciting... we are living in a small town... on Mother earth. RL's son and his pretty bride are interesting people here also.

And: doesn't run often European blood in the veins of the American People? Spanish, frensh, italian, german, english, irish, norwegian a.s.o. ...

I like to here your stories, my dear Milady. So I'm all ears... okay and eyes. Wonderful art, your paintings, all of them.
