Winds of change
Autumn has finally come to Tucson. The wind blew strongly today and there was a chill in the air. The sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the blue blue sky. At night I am sleeping with a blanket now and I actually wore a pair of jeans, a long sleeved blouse, and closed shoes today instead of the shorts and sandals I've been wearing since April/May. When I was visiting Chicago a couple of weeks ago, I saw a lot of tall green leafy trees. Now I am thinking, I'd like to live in a place with more green, like in Vermont or Japan or maybe Iowa. Maybe not Iowa. Somewhere with a bit more rain and less extreme summer heat. An ocean breeze might be nice, too. And good soil. I will probably always miss the desert no matter where I go.
