Sometime in 1997, don't remember exactly when, while I was still in college, my dear friend Sue called me at the darkroom where I hold a student aid job. My boss Judy passed me the phone and the conversation was quick and easy. Sue simply asked me: "Carlos do you want to go to Alaska?” The answer was even quicker: "Sure". A few months later in the spring on the same year, we embarked on the trip that set precedence to an amazing journey, the journey my dear wife Sue and I lived for seventeen more years.
Today I embark on a different journey, a journey in search of a new life, in search of answers, on reasons, on meaning to all the craziness that has surrounded me in the last eight months of my life. Today I am getting ready to go back to Alaska, this time alone, with Sue in my mind. Today I am starting my journey... today I am going northwest!
