It’s Rodeo Time In The Sonoran Desert   1 comment

THE ILLUSORY WORLD

Sage

This world is but a winery,
Its host and master Father Time,
Who caters only to those steep’d
In dreams discordant, without rhyme.

For people drink and race as though
They were the steeds of mad desire;
Thus some are blatant when they pray,
And others frenzied to acquire.

Few on this earth who savor life,
And are not bor’d by its free gifts;
or divert not its streams to cups
In which their fancy floats and drifts.

Should you then find a sober soul

Amidst the state of revelry,
Marvel how a moon did find
In this rain cloud a canopy.

Bareback Riding

JC Trujillo – “Winning is 80% mental!”

“If you want to be world-class you must raise the bar to raise your game.”

It’s easy to say “I’m good enough,” but there is a big difference between “wondering vs knowing” you are good enough. If you want to ride with the stars you have to adopt their life style.

Attitude: A respectable humble champion is a jewel in the sport of rodeo. He lets his riding represent his character and do the talking.

Obnoxious winners lose respect and friends faster than a rock can drop to the ground. In the end it’s the friends you have that count anyway.
