ceej flew home from italy, and the next day we were in the car
driving south to get to our red rock desert.
all of my anxieties about school and the day-to-day routines had
too tight a grip on this soul--so i had to go "home" to the wilderness.
thank goodness ceej was more than willing to come along.
there's nothing like visiting a national park in its off-season:
you can enjoy the vast wilderness without all the crowds
and really take in something that is quite unfathomable...
it's quiet like this that i need. it's views like this i crave.
this wilderness is a necessary remedy. and so i defend it with all my humanity.
can't wait to go back to the desert...just a couple more weeks.
