On another of those evening forays around East Williamson County, Texas this week, I found myself on a county road seldom traveled. Since coming home in 2009, this land of empty and open spaces has added quite a few humans. It seems people are discovering what I’ve known for years. So yes, even out in the boondocks, in farm country, there is “traffic.” But I was happy to encounter a couple of donkeys sharing a field with a contented Texas Longhorn. Coming to a stop for a few quick frames, I expected to be surrounded by cars and trucks bearing down on my Honda. But things remained quiet, giving me a few good minutes to spend with these sweet critters.
