Anyone who has ever moved to a new city to start a new life knows the obstacles, both mental and physical, that such a move creates. No only does it often involve leaving perhaps the only life you might ever have known, but it means starting a new life in an entirely new location, a location that has its own traditions, customs, and style. For writer Ken Green, that transition meant leaving the big city of Chicago for the not-so-big city of Denver. It was the Midwest vs the real West, Chi-Town vs Cowtown, the City of Big Shoulders vs the City That's Near Boulder. And rather than do it for career purposes, he does it more personal reason: to join his future wife.
