I’m feeling homesick today. More than usual. I miss my desert home in Joshua Tree. Coming back to Ohio was bittersweet and while it is always going to be my home…it isn’t “home”. The desert was truly my happy place. I lived in a 6-bedroom house in the middle of the desert. It was 4 miles either way to get to a main hard road. Sand for MILES and I loved it.
It was so quiet. I was so far out in the middle of nowhere that I didn’t hear traffic or city noises. I spent a lot of time sitting out on the deck just enjoying nature. *sigh* There was no central heat in the house because it doesn’t stay cold in the desert for long. At night, I would start a fire in the fireplace. I miss it there…a lot.
