The Truth Cowboy

The cow-hands of the Old West knew.  The cow-hands of today know.  "Don't try to understand 'em. Just rope, throw, and brand 'em."  That's how it is when herding cattle.

Similarly, Truth must be pursued.  It cannot be possessed in our current frame.  It must be acquired and identified, even inventoried.

I'm not really that much of a cowboy.  Never worked in the dirt like those good men and women.  But I know that I gotta chase the Truth, round it up, kind of like chasing cattle.  Someone has to ride herd, take on the distractions which lead the little doggies astray, and vaqueros don't usually ride alone.

Like the library background?  I do too.  It reminds me of one of my mentors who has a lot of books.
