bringer of storms

I've spent NINE LONG YEARS in New Mexico. Heat. Overwhelming, excruciating Heat. Heat with no relief. Practically no rain. Definitely no hope. During that time, I cried out for change. I prayed for change. I begged the gods for change. Nothing happened, so I stopped. Instead, I convinced my husband to take a trip to a place I once loved. Turns out he remembered that he loved it there too. The trips became more numerous and often extended. We were happy again.
One day, when I wasn't looking....for that place to move, that perfect town, that different life....things changed. I began to worry a little less about being HERE because I can always go THERE.
And going THERE is what we do.
We escape to the Colorado backcountry.
Every chance we get.
We have arrived.
Bring on the storm.
