40 miles of sky

so small in the big desert

this weekend: vast expanses of empty desert, dust, dirt roads, mountains. the occasional antelope, the cow crossing the road, several bands of wild horses (!) grazing idly or trotting off. with a little luck I managed to get my day of sunshine, of driving with the windows down, of being tiny in so much space. there was thoughtful conversation, and thoughtful silence. it was hard to come home.

also, see you later, number five.
