To bear up under loss – to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief – to be victor over anger – to smile when tears are close – to resist evil men and base instincts – to hate hate and to love love – to go on when it would seem good to die – to seek ever after the glory and the dream – to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be – that is what any man can do, and so be great.
—  Zane Grey

This post is dedicated to the novelist Zane Grey and to those, like me, who are enthralled by western films. I recently started reading The Last Trail (1909) and it reminded me of my grandmother and how she would spend hours and hours reading those novels. Such engaging evocative stories.

“I need this wildlife, this freedom.”
