It's gorgeous in Tucson

The sun is out, it's the mid-70s, a little lizard thing is climbing the screen, and the birds are chittering. I saw three javalinas this morning and I'm all set for life; no need to see any more.

I'm staying for a few days at the home of my friend S, who (whom?) I met on Flickr several years ago. We both lived in Virginia then, but obviously she moved to Tucson. I'll stay here a few days then foist myself on another friend for a few, then onto a third friend for a final few. I need to keep cruising because you know the comparison of fish and company after a few days. Then I'll meander my way to Petrified Forest, hopefully by way of Canyon de Chelly.


I drove in from Albuquerque yesterday after taking P to the airport. It's a seven-hour drive through some beautiful country. We had such a great week together. As much as we were friends before, we discovered we have so much more in common than we thought, although talking politics bores the socks off me. After living inside the beltway for ten years, politics are like javelinas to me. But we're already deciding where next year's adventure will take us. My vote is for Bryce and Chaco Canyons.


There will be more interesting, hopefully, posts soon, with visuals. Off to Adobe Lightroom I go.

The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it. -

  1. Isn't it delightful to discover that a friendship which began when you were so young, can not only endure but be stronger and just "more" as we see the world through the vision of experience?

    Good for you!

  2. What divergent paths we have taken and yet here we are, back to parallel again as better friends than ever. It's so nice to have her back in my life.
