Honoring Martin Luther King today with art Inspired by by his "I Have a Dream" Speech - and you can watch/listen to it as well. We must still rise up and to make and meet his Dream!
I've had many a crush on an older man of "arts and letters" so to speak. Started with the actor Richard Burton when I was 9 or so and then I had a little someth...ing for Dean Martin (in the Gold Digger dancer days)... Then there was Jesus my Lord, Jim Morrison, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, King Arthur... another musician, another actor, another author, another hero, another poet... and then Sam Shepard - who was all of the above. That flame never lost its light as I got older. Damnit man, you were too young Sam. Too damn young. Soon as I get my bearings, I'll make a toast to the original "rock and roll Jesus with a cowboy mouth"... at some dive bar with a juke box, bourbon, a bible and my music man by my side. 🌸
Congratulations to Jason Borbet Borbay who won the Jackson Hole Still Works Highwater Vodka label competition with his “Jackalope” painting — he is the next artist to be featured on every bottle for a year! …

“Awesome Viking Wood Carving
Like handcrafted bootwear, I imagine that wood carving like this is a nearly lost art form… but good Lord I hope not! Reminds me of the hand-tooled designs we do on boot shafts. So beautifully amazing!
I'd love to see this kind of renovation and restoration happening al over Texas and the West!
