Despite a rough start to the day, I was delighted to have my love cup filled with kitty snuggles and feminine energy tonight.
Once again, the greatest beauty of my trip comes not in solitude but in connection.
The word santosha is Sanskrit for "contentment."
I wasn't a very fun houseguest on my return to Phoenix, but Mindy and I had a great adventure under Gma's moon.

Day 29 was a day of driving en route to some welcome ordinary time with a friend in Phoenix.
Ever since I began planning my trip, I've looked forward to visiting the Joshua Trees. What an amazing place - the National Park and its surrounding spaces!
On my journey, I've listened to lots of tunes in the car, but today, I decided to drive sans radio. I made my way through Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks listening only to the sounds (and silence) of nature.
Today was a long and somewhat frustrating day of driving.
I surprised myself when, in less than five minutes of conversation, I suggested a stranger join me in my journey to Death Valley. To my delight, he accepted my invitation!
