The Passing Of An American Icon
July 23, 2013
With great difficulty and sadness, I share with you the passing of a most magnificent wild horse – El Mariachi. A horse that was admired, loved and an inspiration to me and so many others.
My life was forever changed the day I saw him in the White Mountain range of Wyoming. How our lives were to become connected, I could never have imagined, but I will always be grateful for the privilege.
Most of you know what El Mariachi meant to me, but I realize this is a shared heartbreak. He touched so many people. There was just something about him. He had such presence – you couldn’t help but be in awe of him. What an amazing creature. He made my heart sing.
To all of you that came together on El Mariachi’s behalf, I send you healing thoughts and my utmost gratitude.
(To the readers of this post, please understand that I will not be sharing any details).

Run free El Mariachi…run free…
