wow, thanks. great passage. i'm from the hill country as well, not real far from the famous ranch. it's still kinda like that, out away from the towns. just hills, vultures, and scrub pines. and cactus. i never felt lonely or afraid, though. it's exhilarating but dusty and bone fucking dry.

hawk sightings have qualified as "events" at many a flagamuffin family reunion.

every once in a while my father sends me a picture where he's holding a rattlesnake with one of those plastic things

actually yesterday it was him in the foreground and a nine foot alligator in the background, so i don't know where he was. not the hill country.
