Then there are the cowboys that have figured it out that it is not about the money it is about the moments; the beauty and peace of riding out to meet a new morning, seeing a new born calf or foal, the freedom of the open spaces, glorious sunsets, the satisfaction of a job well done and all life's little pleasures make it worthwhile." ~Tim Cox

"The hooves of the horses O' witching and sweet
Is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet
No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird
Can stir me as hooves of the horses have stirred
They spurn disappointment and trample despair
And drown with their drum beats the challenge of care
With scarlet and silk for their banners above
They are swifter than fortune and sweeter than love
On the wings of the morning they gather and fly
In the hush of the night-time I hear them go by
The horses of memory thundering through
With flashing white fetlocks all wet with the dew
When you lay me to slumber no spot you can choose
But will ring to the rhythm of galloping shoes
And under the daisies no grave be so deep
For the hooves of the horses to sound in my sleep"

~•✿•~ ~•✿•~

"Ride”, it calls, “upon the mountains,
and to the far reaches of the plain,
Ride the good horses and wide open spaces
as though you’ll not pass this way again.”
Endeavor to catch the skyline,
show the mountains that you’ve got sand,
Prove to the sky and rivers
that you’ve the mettle to make a hand."
~ Kevin Meyer~

"Under endless skies
That's where I belong
With miles and miles
Of room to roam"

Victoria Moran Quotes

“A simple life is not seeing how little we can get by with—that’s poverty—but how efficiently we can put first things first. . . . When you’re clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it’s clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar.” ~Victoria Moran
“Growing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.” ~Victoria Moran

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated." ~Victoria Moran

"The idea that everything is purposeful really changes the way you live. To think that everything that you do has a ripple effect, that every word that you speak, every action that you make affects other people and the planet." ~Victoria Moran
