“THEY PUT THE WILD IN THE WEST”
At the beginning of this century, until the 1930’s, women competed in rodeos across the nation. They competed in calf-roping, bronc riding, bull dogging and trick riding. Some were expert in firearms and gave demonstrations (i.e. Annie Oakley). After the events many of the contestants gathered and had group pictures taken. Many of these images were placed on postcards, calendars, and other promotional material. To me, these women were pioneers.
Are you a pioneer treading uncharted land, or, are you walking on well trod ground that is safe? “For of all sad words of tongue or pen the saddest are these it might have been” – John Greenleaf Whittier.
How many search for the meaning of life rather than living life? I love the human experience – which is nothing more than learning who I am.
