The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.-Thornton Wilder
The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Springtime in the Desert
When composing the Sea Urchin post I searched through my pictures for a shot of the cholla cactus to include in the piece. Well I got lost in the pleasant memories and pictures of the desert wildflower trip we did last year. I look forward to another spring season in the desert this year. So far though, this year has been a dry winter in the deserts. There is still time left for some abundant rains to bring forth another glorious bloom. Whatever the case, flowers or no flowers, Sinbad and I will be there.
