The American West is where I live and love or I could say it is where I love to live. This blog is about place. What do I mean by place? In the noun sense every organism occupies a place or niche in their environment. It can be the space you occupy or create - a spot set aside for a certain purpose. Place can be your abode, area, community, dwelling, field, groove, habitat, hamlet, involvement, locale, nook, occupation, region, seat, state, town, village, whereabouts, or your “zone.” It could be a latitude and longitude. It can be your position or point, rank or standing. In a verb sense it can be where you deposit, put, set, or stick something - or where you arrange, file, lay, order, organize and even "reckon."
