I have lived in Kansas for many years. But, I grew up in the high desert of California. I loved living in the desert and always thought it was beautiful.
Now, I have to say, Kansas has its own version of beauty and I appreciate it too! Looking out on golden wheat fields is soothing and comforting to me. And sunflowers are my favorite flower. But…. whenever I go to a high desert area I feel totally at peace. I feel a spiritual presence in a way that I don’t feel anywhere else.
I am lucky because I have a daughter that lives in Colorado so I get to spend some time there a couple of times a year. I always feel rejuvenated when I’m there. When I think about traveling in the future I look the most forward to finding places in the desert mountains to explore and relax and get away from it all. Very soon I will not just be dreaming about it but I’ll actually be doing it!
