It’s not that we are incapable of socializing, we just prefer it on our own terms rather than having it foisted upon us by convention or obligation.  Some of us prefer the company of our dogs and horses, so our friends are dog and horse owners.

My commute is a ten minute winding drive, across rushing streams, through verdant meadows dotted with grazing cattle overlooked by soaring snow capped mountain peaks.

This tiny distant town at the heart of the Lost Sierra is my home.
