The Duke

I've been watching John Wayne films for my history seminar. I still think I'd like to be a cowboy. I miss riding my horse.

As it happened I did not grow up to be the kind of woman who is the heroine in a Western, and although the men I have known have had many virtues and have taken me to live in many places I have come to love, they have never been John Wayne, and they have never taken me to that bend in the river where the cottonwoods grow.
-Joan Didion
