At a lonely barn in the desolate grasslands of the Las Ciegnas Valley, one can allow their imagination to travel back to an earlier century. Here, a small fire chases the chill from a sleeping cowboy's bones, the burning red embers gripping a cast iron kettle of joe so that its steaming hot liquid is ready for the morning roundup. Then, as now, the quiet is only broken by the occasional wail of coyotes, their eerie call a beacon to the pack announcing their place in the wilderness.  The barn and the fences may pen my body to the area, but the stars guide my soul and imagination to the heavens.  I am free! 

 

These are the types of thoughts I ponder while capturing the pristine majesty of the night sky against the dilapidated pioneer structures of a long-gone era.  There is a power in such scenes, a unity created by history in the structures of the past, the lonely singleness of the moment of the present and the endless eternity of the Milky Ways path to infinity.  These are times that I humbly remember our small place and time in the immortal tapestry of God's glorious masterpiece.  These are times that I  bow my head in grateful praise that He has allowed me to be its witness. 

 

It is why I am obliged to be a scribe to His glory.
