Going Down That Long Road Again
For over fifteen years I have been putting kids on Colonial Spanish horses and teaching them the pure joy of hard riding-- hours on end, deep in the woods, in cut over, swamps, and hardwood forests.
For nearly that long I have been putting old fashioned stringed instruments in kids' hands and teaching them the pure joy of playing music hard--hours on end, in churches, on porches, on stage, and around fire pits.
We even teach a little history. This shot is from the construction of our Choctaw chickee . We are tying cat tails that the kids planted and cut to the roof of the that my daughter and grand children worked to assemble.
Knowing that I will likely be doing this for another fifteen or twenty years is one of the best reasons to stay healthy that I can think of.
