Note from the Artist: As soon as I heard today's prompt was the word Wild, the Steppenwolf song "Born to be Wild" popped into my head. It's from the 1969 film "Easy Rider," written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Terry Southern, was produced by Fonda and directed by Hopper. Fonda and Hopper played two bikers who travel through the American Southwest and South, carrying the proceeds from a cocaine deal. Very cool flick. It's the 50th Anniversary this year. So, here is Peter Fonda from that film in his iconic leathers and helmet.
