Sitting in the middle of the desert

You know, every once in a while, you just need to drive out into the middle of a giant desert and sit for some quiet time alone (and a little personal reflection, too). This is my plan for Saturday afternoon. The further away from anyone else, the better I am likely to feel :-) No, my cellphone won’t be working where I’m going, and I won’t be reading my email either. I’ll do some writing from the desert though, since that’s one thing I don’t want to allow to slide any more than it already has.

I’m not sure I’ll make it to Vegas. I’ll probably drive to Nevada, but then I’m thinking about just doing a U-turn and driving off into the night. Driving aimlessly is a great way to deal with personal stuff. If I don’t manage at least 800 miles of completely pointless driving this weekend, I’ll be disappointed. And if I wind up lying, looking at the stars and writing poetry on the same beach in the middle of the night again, I’ll be even more disappointed with myself. But, we’ll see what happens.
