I would like to think that every day I get up and learn a lesson that makes me a little better of a person then I was the day before. Somedays the lessons are easy to learn and others not so. I spent the past 3 days in the desert . It is a time of quiet and solitude. I talk little and see no one. Time was spent exploring the desert for signs of spring, seeing new out of old and something out of nothing. I see my time in the desert as a sort of prayer. My communication with my spiritual self and an outside source of power. All of it the ride down, the setting up of the trailer, the morning walks, the journal work is part of the process. Something negative happened this time to destroy my peace of mind. Towing the trailer through a storm-the little trailer was bouncing and shaking and I was afraid if I looked up I would see it beside me instead of behind in me the rearview mirror! Fortunately all worked out and we arrived at our destination without incident. This is a lesson for me in control, something I have to work on. I could not control the weather and I can't control my husband. I just had to sit and be. It is so hard to do. JUST BE.
