How Do You Think?

This poem has been a favorite of the Cowboy since he was 14.  It spoke to him, his strengths and his desires – all in a tidy, slightly silly package.

“Think as I think,” said a man,
“Or you are abominably wicked;
You are a toad.”
And after I had thought of it,
I said, “I will then, be a toad.

Stephen Crane (1871-1900)

Here’s to toads, princes and cowboys.  May all of our wishes come true.  May we be who we dreamt of being.  And may we be strong enough to be ourselves.
