East meets West.

Ideals and fascinations in response to the Rocky Mountain West are common. Some people are looking for ranch property, others for a secluded sanctuary, and still others a ski-in-ski-out chalet. I came because I needed to explore, to do something new, to greet the unknown.

My decision to travel westward was not a long thought out one. Simply stated, I woke up one morning and decided I was going to move. I thought to myself I am young, uncommitted, and wanted to be able to physically connect to nature. I was about to make a huge change in my life for reasons that were personally daring. I did not take into account others thoughts or opinions, nor did I move in the hopes of salvaging personal relationships. For the first time in my life , I was doing something for myself.

So that was it, I kissed my roommate goodbye and left one of the most intellectual stimulating environments I had ever been part of for a new natural environment...

What do I want? What do I need? Who do I want to spend my time with? Finding yourself and seeking out your own personal journey is important. We all want inner peace and value in love. We all want to share this with someone but, more importantly with who?
