Yet, for all their grandeur, what mountain tourist towns have in height they lack in depth. Transience inevitably abounds. Relationships just don't seem to flourish the way they should. Shared experiences are plenty but like a pine tree struggling to root atop granite, friendships don't get the nourishment they need to truly thrive. A nagging feeling grows -- of being too far away from old friends and family. I'll always love the mountains of Colorado but there came a time when I had to break out of my comfort zone and chase greater aspirations. Denver might not sound too far removed but trust me, it's further from the essence of the mountains than some weekend warrior can ever know.
Nowadays I'm pursuing what was once only a distant dream. I hope to soon be able to say with confidence... always follow your dreams. It's been painfully slow at times but I'm progressing and we'll see how it all turns out. No one ever seems to talk about how much risk and work dreams can entail! But enough about me. I want to hear about you.
I'll admit, I'm hanging on to a healthy a bit of skepticism with this online matchmaking thing. It seems a bit silly writing so much about myself in such a public forum. I just wish connections could happen more naturally -- at the grocery store or in line for coffee. Oh, our modern circumstance where we seem to have everything at our fingertips except for what really matters. Anyway, let me know if you see something you like and if you don't mind feeling a bit silly yourself.
Best of luck finding your connection,
