Lost on Country Roads

I spent last weekend driving the back roads of central Texas.  Off of the highways with my camera next to me.  It’s country where Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen came of age.  Lyle still lives there and you can see how the roads do go on forever.  There is a wave from the farmers in their trucks and Texas pride everywhere you look.  Towns are called Blackjack and there’s a Baptist church on a corner of every town.  I found an ice cream factory,  gourmet chocolates, beautiful rolling hills dotted with horses and cattle, and a renewed love of removing myself from the city.
