Last Week

They seemed like acquaintances, each needing something from each other. She needed someone to hear her as she spoke of her middle age life as a mother and proud accomplishments of her middle school daughter. He was younger than her and he listened.

The myth of the cowboy holds strong for me. The Lone Ranger, Rifleman, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne and shooting at a tin can in the desert as a young boy.
