i return to the classroom on january 11. i’ll have to face the sad fact that my travel shoes will have to go into the closet. the keys to the getaway car hung on a higher hook.
time for one more trip? um. yes i think so. better paddle out quick before my oars are hidden away.
besides, the shimmering new year is on the horizon. is there a better time for a treck out to the high desert? no siree there is not.
a sojourn in a little desert shack. a little walking, writing, and ruminating about all the new year holds. solitude. how a person who lives alone can crave solitude so much is a mystery not to be solved in this lifetime.
but i’ll be here. watching the desert sky, sending dispatches out into the starry sky, building fires, enjoying the cold desert air.
it’s all about the stars & meteor showers. i’ll be watching the Geminids from my high desert perch. can’t wait for that!
HERE is a link with photos of the monster surf we’ve been experiencing in the last week. 33 foot waves? Dangerous, but oh so magnificent!
hope you’re well. hope you’re content and warm. preparing for your own style of holiday celebrating. keep in touch.
