Out in West Texas

Out in West Texas - pictures and stories by sheerheart.org

Holy smokes, it has been almost two years since I took a trip to West Texas. If you are fond of breath-taking sunrises and sunsets, wide open spaces and limited internet access, add West Texas to your vacation list asap. While writing my Top 5 Friday: Western Novels post, I realized I hadn’t shared many of the pictures I took on my long weekend out in Alpine and Marfa. Who knows why I didn’t get back and immediately overload y’all with them. Nonetheless, I’m here now with a couple handfuls…

Top 5 Friday: Guy Clark

Top 5 Friday: Guy Clark

Almost a year ago, Guy Clark passed away. Unfortunately, it took him dying, for me to ever look his music up. Truly, I didn’t know who he was before then. But thankfully, after his passing I stumbled onto an online post sharing some of his music. And then for several months straight, I listened to nothing else. Nothing.

Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 13

Edition 13: November 7, 2014

Happy first Friday of November! This is one of my most favorite sunset pictures of all time. I actually took this about a year ago after work one evening. That was when I was still living at home with my family out in the country. Living out there, I learned to never be too far away from my camera because you never know when you may need it right quick. Sunsets are so bittersweet though, they can be so gorgeous but skies like these don’t last very long. Recently, I…

I promise this is not photoshopped.

Seriously. These pictures were taken off of my camera. But let’s rewind. This past Friday, after fighting the usual Friday afternoon traffic, I finally made it out to the country and back in my cozy, warm house. Ok let me rephrase: my parents’ cozy, warm house. Just as I settled down to finish what would be my eighth book in the last three weeks (what what), my mom suggested that I take the camera outside and check out the sunset. (For the record, my mom makes suggestions and then my dad…
