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.

This Old Cottonwood


It lived quite a few years just fine in the harsh desert environment judging by the size, 
then it all of sudden it gave up and died.  
Perhaps the underground water source it relied upon changed course for some reason.
