Glad you stopped by. Thanks for taking the time to post. Mountain Bird is a beautiful place, isn't it? I've seen the photos on the site you mentioned and the others on the Joshua site. I got curious after reading a reference to the ranch at ROS. I was hoping it wasn't true, but I found it too, and I suppose there's no avoiding it now.
After the initial shock, and then an odd sort of excitement at seeing the photos, I wished I'd never seen it. Since then, I've been trying to avoid thinking about it. I know, it sounds so stupid, because things change, life goes on, etc etc, but the idea of him selling the ranch really hit me with a wall of sadness. It just brings a lot of things to mind, realities to bear.
I tried to think about it in a more positive light, you know, but it's hard. His studio! His mountains! His life! It just doesn't feel right. Ok, I know, it's not my life. Why should it effect me so? I don't know. It just does. I hope he's alright. I hope it's just a matter of moving on, sailing, painting, relaxing - chasing the song of the sea.
