The Lonesome Cowboys
Escaping the country as a girl, I find myself as a woman traveling back from the city to the long winding roads and beyond, searching for a part of myself that fills the gap of my lonely life in the city. As I search I wonder about my life if I had stayed, a simple life in the hills tucked in with the sweeping blue skies surrounded by tall trees. As I dream I attempt to capture this world.
I travel beyond my comfort and find a scene that tears my reality adrift and takes me on an adventure I longed for. Cowboys, a community of men that come together to test themselves against the beasts of the earth in a rugged landscape, I felt at home here. Like so many of us, the cowboys perilously hung their dreams in a fight to conquer the beasts.
After the fight all I could see was the vulnerability, and yearning nature of the human kind. These are the Lonesome Cowboys.
