At this point in my life I was really examining whether or not I should leave my home state of Iowa and try to find some other state to live in. Colorado struck my fancy then and it still does now. I made some attempts to move out of Iowa but found myself being held back due to financial concerns. You can see how my personal questions and doubts have morphed into happy stone Sphinxes — one of which has clambered up onto my back! Don’t they look so smug? It’s almost like they’ve got the answer and they’re just waiting for me to catch up.
