The “Cowboy” Way vs. the World

Cowboys are depicted in many ways , since their name was created.  They are generally  called “cowpokes”, or “wranglers”. (See below.)

a man, typically one on horseback, who herds and tends cattle, especially in the western US and as represented in westerns and novels.
A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend.[1] A sub-type, called a wrangler, specifically tends the horses used to work cattle. In addition to ranch work, some cowboys work for or participate in rodeos.
The cowboy has deep historic roots tracing back to Spain and the earliest European settlers of the Americas. Over the centuries, differences in terrain, climate and the influence of cattle-handling traditions from multiple cultures created several distinct styles of equipment, clothing and animal handling. As the ever-practical cowboy adapted to the modern world, the cowboy’s equipment and techniques also adapted to some degree, though many classic traditions are still preserved today.
Here is the link with the source information I am provided:
Their mentality , is more  to  what i wish to express here.
They have no time or patience  for worldly non-sense. They are geared toward necessity. I can relate to that. I have also come to realize that this world prides itself  on nonsensical, trivial and useless things and ideas. That doesn’t mean I have to.
One example concerning  when I express displeasure  of worldly things in writing….I am told I am “too serious”,etc. I spend most days , in thought…. even when  being with my  husband. He is one of those  kinds of cowboys, that I refer to in this paragraph. I can be melancholic, or reticently recollecting  things gone by, or things I might wish  that were  a part  of life.

Who knows ,I might just be a “cowgirl” at heart!
