Hitting the dusty trail…

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.

Robert Louis Stevenson 1850-1894

 

Part of my Tucson dreams includes buying a small travel trailer and hitting the road for months or a year. I love this old Airstream! It’s already owned by someone and it is very small and has wonderful features, like those riveted curves and the curved tiny roof over the door.

The newer Airstreams are elegant and wonderful in their own way as you can see in the photo below.

There are blessings in the desert…

If you don’t die of thirst, there are blessings in the desert. You can be pulled into limitlessness, which we all yearn for, or you can do the beauty of minutiae, the scrimshaw of tiny and precise. The sky is your ocean, and the crystal silence will uplift you like great gospel music, or Neil Young.

Anne Lamott 1954-

I went to Tucson for a few days to look around and I couldn’t take my eyes off the sky and the landscape. The scale of the mountains that surround Tucson make the city look like a Monopoly game board.

On Sunday, I was able to attend some open houses in the foothills and they were nice places with privacy and great views. I prefer to be close to my neighbors, so closer to town will be better for me.

It was a great experience being in Tucson and I look forward to the day when I move there, but I don’t have a clear idea about when that will be or what section of Tucson is right for me.
