Blowin' In The Wind

How many more days must the Llano Estacado endure the current cycle of drought? The answer my friends is written on the relentless prairie winds sweeping the withered landscape. We humans agonize over lack of rain. The short grass prairie appears content to wait for moisture. Native flora and fauna employ survival skills and mechanisms selectively bred into them long ago by the harsh high plains environment.

The artist within me wrestles with the choice of making images of the status quo or allowing imagination to paint the prairie. I choose the latter.
