Sometimes I just miss the expanse of the Southwest.
Although it is fall here and the leaves are changing,
the Southwest is calling my name.

This is the first time in about three years that I have not been able to drive to Phoenix for a visit in the fall. All those trips were crisis orientated, but still I could drive the car through the Pueblo areas and just enjoy the fall.

My husband leaves for a trip to see our daughter tomorrow.
While he is there he will enjoy the colors of the Mid Atlantic states.
Beautiful, but nothing like the desert waking from the scorch of the heat
Fall is just so different where I grew up
It is a time of rejoicing instead of quietly going to sleep.

Maybe next fall a trip across the desert will happen.
