The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Friendship ~ Love

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust

Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care.

Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart.

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart.

Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near.

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best.

Love is when you bring them the very best.

Friendship occupies your mind.

Love occupies your soul.

Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need.

Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side.

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.

Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares:

A tender laugh, which opens your heart,

A single touch that melts away your fears,

A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven,

A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

Friendship can survive without love.

Love cannot live without friendship.

The Cowboys of Wyoming

Why does the thought of the American cowboy bring to mind romance and nostalgia? What is it about the cowboy that personifies the American spirit of adventure and intrigue? Do we all dream of a simpler life and time that is only imagined by most but lived out daily by the cowboys of the Western frontiers? While spending time in Wyoming, looking out over the endless prairie I have begun to imagine what life could be like for these iconic figures.

While growing up watching westerns it is refreshing to think, to hope actually, that the true western spirit can be captured by the visions of dark starry nights, campfires with cowboys singing and storytelling about the adventures of the day and a way of life that has been played out on the screen and played out in our heart and through our imagination. In many ways it seems a contradiction that these cowboys are the reckless, fearless, honorable men that make up the backbone of the American frontier while they are also the adventurous spirits that we think of as young children in make believe. These cowboys in our mind and heart are the ones who still believe in chivalry, who still believe in adventure, who still believe in loyalty, who still believe in honor, who still believe in love of family and love of life. Like the lyrics to “my heroes have always been cowboys” true cowboys are a breed unto themselves, dreamers, adventurers, loners and romantics.

In watching the old westerns, we realize that cowboys, with all of their romantic values, bring forth what we all hope for and dream of in a county divided by ideas and ways of life. Through them we are unafraid of where we are going and always able to look back with pride at where we have come from and who we are growing up to envision and become. We realize, through watching, that life is a journey full of trials, tribulations and  jubilations – one step forward with dreams of what could be, what should be and what all is in store for us once we realize that the world before us is full of adventure and happiness and all that that entails. The life of a cowboy is always a challenge, forever a vision.

Imagine the dark indigo sky of the western Wyoming frontier. Imagine the feel of vast acreage spreading out in every direction. Imagine a life of freedom and a life of love, happiness and all that the true dream of the west encompasses. Life is good in Wyoming and life is good through the eyes of the American cowboy. Long live the Wyoming cowboy and long live his dreams.
