Summer has passed and the leaves are falling as we move into winter. Our landscape has changed as we made our move out of the RV and into a home on the eastern side of the northern New Mexico mountain range.
A lot of reflection as we exited our year of living among the wild mustang on their landscape, embracing their daily lives and learning lessons along the way. I can't say I have ever 'formally' written a 'bucket list', but if I had, the year of living among the wild mustangs was one I would not trade and glad that we made the choices we did, though not always easy, well worth the experience and opportunities gained along the way.
And so, for now, we settle into somewhat of a 'normal' life if there is such a thing, with a solid roof over our heads, running water, warmth and convenience. We have brought our 'brood' of horses with us, though Sierra Cancion still runs at the former mustang ranch until we can fetch her, perhaps early spring as the snows come to an end.
If I could put into words all the glories, and hardships we have endured over the last year...it might just make a pretty good read! As winter is on our heals I will embark back into the studio to paint, and also to begin writing and see where it takes me.
For now...life is quiet, calm and there is an ease to our days outside of the work load of managing and renovating the ranch here, stay tuned for great news of things just around the corner!
I have been filtering through photographs from the last two years or more of range visits, enjoy the pictures as I begin posting more of our 'Drinkers of the wind'.
See you soon!
'Sierra Cancion' photo from last winter on the ranch. She is a wonderful spirited El Rito wild mustang, and I love knowing she is running free!
