Greetings from Oklahoma!
But, Could Mark Live Here?
This is my entryway to the Southeast. In Oklahoma I begin to see more cowboys and oil rigs and signs of the hard, rugged life. The scenery is turning from green grass to brown dirt - still rich in color and still rich in character, like the people I've met in this beautiful state.
(Clockwise, from top, left) Oklahoma is more than ranch land! Just look at these nice, rolling hills, next to the Will Rogers Museum, in Claremore. ::: One sick man, one stupid idea, one fence full of tears. ::: Sallisaw, Oklahoma, where the Joads began their journey to the promised land, in The Grapes of Wrath. ::: If you want to have a garage sale in eastern OK, this is the way to advertise it - pretty clever, I thought.

She is full-blood Cheyenne. Her name is Kind Woman. Her skill is beading and sewing moccasins. Her love is people.
