One of my images, Heading Out, was published on cowboypoetry.com as an Art Spur feature. Art Spur is described on the website as “It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words…we know many that are worthy of a poem. In Art Spur, we invite poets to let selections of Western art and photography inspire their poetry.” I invite you to visit the Art Spur page and read the resulting poetry that was inspired by this image. One of the poems is by my husband and is his first Western poem, about a son who is curious to know what his mother does out at the ranch when the rest of the family goes to church on Sundays. In the last verse, you will find that this woman and I have much in common in our feelings about the sacredness of the nature.
