About the Cover Image

I chose this picture of the Teton Mountains for a couple of things. The first is that it’s an absolutely breathtaking image to look at. There is nature as far as the eye can see, untouched by the destructive influence created by humans. The second reason why I chose this image is because it relates to “Thoughts and Ideas,” the main theme for my portfolio. The Tetons mean a lot to me because it was a place that inspired thinking. It is the high peaks and the snowy caps that spark one’s inner creativity. I chose “Thoughts and Ideas” for this portfolio because throughout all of my writings, I noticed a sort of trail of thinking. I would look at a topic and I would let my mind and imagination wander to whatever world it would take me. Solvitur Ambulando.
