They reminded me of gunslingers in a western saloon. This is what men do at the bar, chew the fat, shoot the breeze, talk big - except..... I once heard a bunch of men who were all friends admit they were frightened.

Not of a fight you understand, or anything else you could face up to, these guys were older man, who would still be handy in a punch-up.

They were afraid of something else.

Life is fragile and uncertain, our fears are ancient, deep and well-founded.

In wine, there's truth.

I was shocked by the honesty, the intelligence the insight.
The conversation is still with me.
