My Brother’s First Photo Exhibit
My little brother, Charles, recently had his first solo photo exhibition Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver. The exhibit was titled “The Flying Horsemen” after my grandparents farm in Burkburnett, Texas. The name was taken from my Grandfather James’ troop he flew with during WWII.
I must say it’s pretty surreal to see a piece of my family’s history in a museum…. not to mention my kid brother’s name on the wall right above the name of my grandparent’s ranch. Glad to see someone in my family has talent! :-D

Looking at the photos from the exhibit Charles put together gives me a flood of emotions: From a sense of sadness from having lost my Grandfather in August 2010, to humility reminding me how hard my family and ancestry have worked to provide a better life for future generations, to intense pride for my Texas heritage which goes back seven generations. No matter where I live, where I move, or where I end up… I’ll remain Texan to my core and intensely proud of my family.
