Breathless: Four (Poetic) Minutes Reminding Us Why We Live in Colorado


Today marks the two-month anniversary of my arrival in Colorado.

If this was a relationship, now’s about the time infatuation would start wearing off—when I’d start noticing my new love’s flaws. Maybe even start comparing him to my ex-boyfriend (in this scenario, Portland, Oregon).


Instead, today I discovered this Denver valentine in my inbox: Breathless, a visual love poem to Colorado, crafted for TEDxMileHigh from the great minds (and videographers) at Air Ball Creative.

And I fell in love all over again.

Whether you’ve lived here five minutes or 50 years, I’m betting you will too.
