Go West

"Go west young man, and grow up with the country" - Horace Greeley

I have given up on growing up, and I can't recall  the last time I was referred to as young. Still, Greeley's encouragement resonates. So I cast my gaze west - or more specifically I cast my gaze at maps of the west, strewn across my desk.

Living in Texas, I suppose I already I in the west. While I love Texas and can't imagine living anywhere else, I do get wanderlust from time to time. My daydreams go to the mountains. I have nothing against beaches and oceans, but they do not call deeply to my soul. The mountains do.
