Looking by and beyond the Wild West buildings I have long been drawn to, a secret spoke. I am in love with the contradiction of such a space and with the gentle finding that two opposing longings can make peace. These early architectures represent a human desire to explore—to discover—to reshape rules that don’t comfortably fit. They rekindle that in us and wake us up to possibility. But they equally symbolize a reckoning. They stand for that moment in time when a bold pioneer got off the horse and hushed the horizon’s siren song. These towns—these streets—these structures of our storied Wild West signify that brave moment when we quiet the noise and whisper to ourselves ‘I have arrived.’
