What I'm Looking For....

What I'm looking for...

A few years ago I bought my property in Wyoming and documented the whole thing with photos.  When I returned home my sister made a video of the adventure and set it to music.  What I'm looking for can pretty much be summed up in the titles and words to some of those songs.  To this day, when I hear one of those songs on the radio, my heart skips a beat...or I cry.  Happened just two weeks ago when I was making one of my many trips to move my things out of Colorado and into Wyoming.  I swear "someone" was trying to tell me something.  The road trip cry fest began with "Where The Green Grass Grows".  A few lines always do to it to me..."I wanna live where the green grass grows / every night be tucked in close to you / plant our dreams where the peaceful river flows.  (Three things I'm looking for right there).  I've obtained the place where the green grass grows, working on planting my dreams there...but the other line..."every night be tucked in close to you"...unless it is referring to my dogs...doesn't look too promising for me yet.  It's a little difficult to find someone with a similar dream or, even harder, willing to share in yours. 

After my short bout of leaky eyes, the next tune came on and, suddenly, I felt empowered.  "Should Have Been A Cowboy"..."should have learned to rope and ride, wearing my six shooter, riding my pony on a cattle drive".  I imagine my self standing tall, holster hanging from my hips and a gun strapped to my thigh...tell me...THAT doesn't make a girl feel ready to take on anything.  OK, I'm starting to feel a little better now.  Even begin to think that if I do learn to rope I might be able to tie someone up and tuck them in close to me.  Just kidding ;)  Kind of....

This post was going somewhere and was going to be serious...I promise...but I seem to be stuck on someone tied up next to me and can no longer concentrate on anything else.  I'm pretty sure I know what I'm looking for now :) ;) !!!!!
