greetings from moab utah

in the last few days i have experienced…
another snowstorm (cold and wet sleeping)
beef jerky and an orange for breakfast
the wild west (gun shops and gas stations)
desert, desert, and more desert
a game of pool in a saloon in the middle of the desert
dinner with great friends (laughing uncontrollably at a beautiful two year old named Addison)
a shower (oh my god it was good)
a night in a motel
incredible red rock landscapes as far as the eye can see
bad cappucinos out of a machine in a gas station
mountains sprawling everywhere, snow capped
views that caused me to gasp out loud
it’s amazing how the mind drifts and wanders while on a long car trip. Thoughts float out into the mountain peaks outside my window and flit around. drifting like the snow. somehow on the tops of those mountains i find my centre again. it comes back with a force. i hope it continues this way.
this trip has been so good for me, i am learning more about myself. about sitting with feelings. about what i can do, questioning my limitations. about being homeless for a time. about feeling safe while travelling. i am working on a job while on the road, (something I have never done before). strange to me to work with none of my comfort zones, my studio, my solitude, etc. it is possible.
today we hike in red rock.
tomorrow to telluride. I hope i can find a scanner.
