We’re definitely in a time where interest in trades is at an all-time low; some people want to pay the same price for a custom-built piece that they would pay at Ikea. But I think working hard and staying humble still goes a long way in today's society. Pursuing a craft like carpentry means you have to be ready and willing to take on new challenges, be consistent and show great pride in your work.
My entrance into Colorado was just the beginning of what this place has become to me: A culture that lends itself to time for slow conversation and to sit in silence as the sun goes to sleep behind the hills. Familiarity has been earned with the passing of seasons: but the community and landscape of Colorado provided an almost instantaneous sense of belonging.
