--photos by Elaine A. Russell

I've been thinking alot how we (*I) need to take control of our lives. How we actually are the directors and pioneers of this time we have. Yes, circumstances and obligations and such play a heavy hand... but ultimately... we are in the driver seat.
It is up to us if we are going to make something of ourselves, or hold onto excuses as to why we couldn't fulfill our dreams.

Traveling thru the Midwest, there are visual reminders of the pioneer days. Times when people pulled up their bootstraps so to speak... and did it or died trying.

To my friends "C&C" ... a photo homage to the wild west.
