Utah, Arizona, California, Part 1
I am way behind on the journaling. In an attempt to catch up, and simultaneously give myself a little break from writing to myself, this entry will cover a great deal of ground, in considerably fewer words. In other words, this one is mostly pictures!
I would like to tell anyone willing to read this, just how much I appreciate you. I appreciate you as a patient person, willing to overlook errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, redundancy and grammar. I appreciate your presence here. I appreciate your good taste, and your willingness to expand that good taste to include the reading of these journals. And, I appreciate you as an inspiration. You, if you are really there, are an unexpected gift to me, a strange treasure, sending soft, nearly inaudible little messages to me as I pour out my heart and ponder the obvious. Your message to me is a simple and sweet, “What the hell are you talking about?” It is a message I need, and one I often ask of myself. Let’s hope we both find an answer to that question in 2019 - Sincerely, Andrew
This delightful creature was on the trail above the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. I spent a few minutes trying to get as close to it as I could without pissing it off. What a beautiful creature. A passing Texan dismissed it with a remark about how much bigger they are back home..typical.
Our journey began in California, and has taken us on a 16,000 plus mile circle. That circle began in L.A., and was completed after our transmission bit the dust. We’ll tell that tale in the next journal entry!
