Riches of Gold

He rode along on the dusty trail

Following the legends and the tall tales

He covered the lands far and wide

Just him, his horse, and his dog by his side

He heard of riches, gold, and fame

It was the only reason that so many came

There’s gold in them hills they all exclaimed

Just waiting for you to come stake your claim

The fever hit hard and he got the itch

To head out west and make it rich

But just as others had gone and tried

He sat there broke with a tear in his eye

He gathered up his things and he said goodbye

And headed back down the trail all broken inside

Along the way, he realized that his riches were not gold

But the love of his horse, his dog, and his memories were his real riches if the truth be told

At a young age, I worked as a structural steel welder walking red iron. Later I moved into the Telecom, Technology, and Physical Security Industry for the last 35 years as a Sr. Design Engineer, Network Engineer, Director, Operations Manager, and Technical Writer. My desires have always been with electronics, designing, CAD Drawings, and Technical writing. My true passion is the outdoors, hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, photographing nature, and sharing it with others. I am an avid outdoorsman, fly fishing guide, with a deep passion to write about my adventures. I enjoy writing inspirational quotes, articles on the history of creeks I fish, fly fishing conservation, and short stories along with a bit of poetry. As a child, I listened to old men in the General Stores telling stories of the past and their adventures. Some were real and some were as real as the imagination in their minds. Each day, I would run up there to listen to one of their adventures and would sit on the edge of my seat as if I were there, yearning for more. These growing up years led me to my own storytelling and eventually writing about my own adventures. Taking people to places and having them visualize things that they may have never seen. Telling tales that take them back to their own youth and adventures. Bringing stories that will warm the heart, educate them on the history of an area and bring a positive attitude to their lives. My desire as a writer is to open the minds of others that will enjoy the stories that are only limited by my imagination, but will bring a bit of peace, comfort, and harmony to the world. To leave them hanging on the edge and waiting for that next adventure, positive attitude, or story to warm the heart.
