Chasing Lions

I had the pleasure and honor of growing up in a multi-generational farming family.

In 1974 at the age of five, I began to follow my Grandfather every day on the family farm as he tended to his ranch. Over the years he taught me a lot about farming – but more importantly about life. Then one day in my late teens, he told me it was time to get off the ranch and “go chase lions.”

I never asked him what he meant by that, because something inside me already knew.

It’s been over 20 years now since he passed and I have been chasing lions ever since.
