It was so hard to leave the sunny desert, where even at 5:30am, in the dark, the Inn looked so lovely, with the moon still high in the sky..
But isn’t that the hidden tooth in all vacation idylls, that you have to come back?
I had no idea how much I needed the time away. There was so much to ponder, so much to see once I opened my eyes in that clear light.
I think the desert air really has cleared my mind and led me to ask myself certain questions:
Like how much do I want to keep in my life and how much am I ready to leave by the side of the road? And what is my path forward?
If only all our paths were trimmed with flowers like these inn flowers, softly underlit by the lights nestled under them.
