Once again, the greatest beauty of my trip comes not in solitude but in connection.
I haven't ridden a horse in years...and I've never ridden a mule...but today I rode one down into a canyon and loved it!
I don't recall much from grade school geology, so sometimes all this history of the natural landscape stuff seems like new information to me...
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.
Something shifted for me in Sedona...and I can't help but hope this sense of just being okay sticks with me.
It's almost unbelievable how beautiful the views are in every direction from anywhere and everywhere you go in Sedona.
Day 29 was a day of driving en route to some welcome ordinary time with a friend in Phoenix.
If this journey is about figuring out my next steps in life, then I guess the place to start is with taking a step back and looking in from the outside, thinking about what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong.
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!
