This was elegant and lovely and I very much reading it. Thank you. Brokeback endures for as well, in part because I have lived in Wyoming. I got into. Big argument with an urban gay man about the movie when it came out. He didn't think it was realistic. But it is. Far more so than many realize. Having lived out there myself, I can attest that things still really aren't all that different.
Thanks Art! I hope to visit Wyoming some day.
