After having gone back and watched some of my old favorite westerns, I've come to a better understanding of why people still love hearing about the adventurous exploits of cowboys and watching all those timeless old "Wild West" films with Clint Eastwood and John Wayne and many others.
I find that some of those old flicks have priceless pearls of wisdom that you can always take to heart; like this little gem I got from "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West"...granted I added that part about the cycle of heroes, but the first part is straight from the old dog himself (that is to say the old dog in the film ^^). In fact, the saying doesn't just apply to heroes, but to life itself. When the sun sets on one story it dawns on another story; when one life ends another one begins. It truly is what the cycle of life is really all about.
