Things aren't always perfect, but they're often good enough. I crashed my car driving to the Elizabeth Stampede, but was determined to still make it, and I did. It is almost surreal how this experience brought my whole project together. At the Stampede, I stood in the boots that inspired my project, next to my friends who helped make the experience possible, and listened to Joe Diffie play "John Deere Green." That is the paint I used on my chair and also a song that has my mom's name in it, which inspired me to create an additional piece of art to hang on the wall. I feel very grateful to have been a part of this program, to have walked away from flipping my car without any injuries, and to have great friends who made sure I still made it to the show.
