I met heart, help, and true peace in West-Colorado; I met “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the area of Ouray, Colorado, and Ridgway; Ridgway, Colorado, where John Wayne used to daily booze after his daily act on the True Grit movie set, shot in downtown Ouray; Ridgway, where the Duke used to daily plant his genuine grit into what thence became the True Grit Cafe, and to dive into the dialogues learning of the scenes for the next day shooting, or to drown into the eternel memories of behind the scenes with endless dialogues.

That is truth; In Colorado, in Ouray County, I met true grit and friendship spirit . . . and John Billings, the dude who cast the Grammy Awards, somewhere in Ridgway, CO.
