It has become my sanctuary of sorts to drive to, park, to breathe, clear my mind. I have come to love this type of desert beauty, it’s raw and unique.
Today I have a deep bitter taste in my mouth because the desert here is dwindling. Homes and new construction are top priority as the desert yields to progress. Every sahuaro has been transplanted to who knows where. Homes now are within a mile of the mountain range.
I know, I know, some things are inevitable, change is coming, can’t stop the future…
I have no answers for you, sorry. My only take on all this is to enjoy what life has to offer. Make it your friend, respect her, take care of her while she’s still here.
In Hawaii this is called Pono.
