I guess I finally got the point while living on the East Coast of the United States when my mind starts to miss the Southwest deserts. It is currently Winter in Maryland and the trees are all still bare of their leaves. But soon, as is inevitable, the leaves will return and everywhere I look, I will see trees. I have had this closed in feeling before many times. I do love weather, snow, and rain. But there is something about the desert that is part of me that rain and ocean views do not address.
