"One December, my best friend Val took me and introduced me to these majestic wild horses in the West Desert (my new Happy Place). I fell in love with this herd, not knowing they would be my salvation and the biggest part of my recovery from my injuries." -Guillermo Avila Paz
"In these Vacant Places, I have often found ways to “vacate' thoughts that are painful and intrusive. Thoughts that could otherwise be debilitating." - Wendell Thayne
