My Garden: Mesa, AZ 2023
New Year’s day dawns dark, dreary, and rainy, which is so rare in the desert southwest. I stir from a deep slumber, listening to the uncommon sound of water dripping off the roof.
These days, the calendar pages seem to fall away with every breath. I guess it’s natural as you age and have less life ahead of you than behind. Still, I am so grateful for the precious moments I have. As more of my friends die and my favorite musicians join that big band in the sky, I count each day as a blessing.
gentle falling rain
aquifers filling, life thrives-
dry desert blooming
