Why?

My name is Darren.  I’m a thirty something year old guy.  I’ve spent the last 13 years of my life fighting Wildland Fires.  It was my passion.  I quite literally bled for my passion.  Fighting fires is more than a job, it turns into a way of life.  It has shaped me into the man I have become today.  Near 10 years ago I met the love of my life.  I knew as soon as I saw her that I was in trouble, deep.  Through the years, the more I came to understand her, the deeper I fell in love.  Although I knew that she was the spark of my heart, she refused to reciprocate.  I kept moving forward, it was the only option.  I invested all my being into my work.  I lived, I learned, and I grew.  At some point she began to love me.  We are together now and my heart is complete.  The kicker is that my passion has changed, fighting Wildland Fires has taken a back seat to my heart.  It is a strange feeling.  My way of life has changed.  The commitment it requires to fight fires is secondary to my heart.  The balance between the two I have come to realize is near impossible.  Its time to rewrite my life.  A different chapter in my story.  I want to use this as a medium to relate this chapter.  This is not for anyone but me.  I hope this helps me keep my values, my principles, and my new life on the course I desire.  I do not claim to be an expert on any of the topics on these pages.  I am not a doctor/fitness guru/ninja, this site is my journey.
