My Cowboy Moment
My Cowboy MomentAs a small audience looks on, I realize this is my cowboy moment. My long shadow stretches across the worn wood floor and for a couple seconds, I resemble an old west gunfighter entering a saloon. With my camera in hand, the moment soon passes. But beyond the cowboy hatless and short clad shadow of my likeness, does indeed live a tall, roving "cowboy in my spirit!"
