Good morning! You made it to May 30, 2020 and yes, it is still a good thing. You are still breathing and still here to see history in the making. Our future grandchildren will learn of 2020 and germs, politics, racism, unemployment and civil unrest, a president that sparred with a social media company while the country burned and George Floyd. Hubby was home yesterday and we turned off the world and retreated to the safety of our car and took a short drive to Box Canyon as it has been re-opened. We left early so I would be able to take a few photos of the canyon before it got too hot. It was nice driving or should I say, riding, as I am the forever “shotgun rider,” down the 86 toward the Salton Sea. I was very so high so I did not take my camera out till we got close to the Box Canyon turn-off.
Before we go on this little adventure, the Universe gifted another gem, singer and fiddle player, Phoebe Hunt. Her website lists her as “Mystic Indie Folk” and me likey a lot! I noticed her on the people I should know a few times so I checked her out this morning and so glad that I did. Thank you again Universe, for the gift! Do check out her website for more info on this star or give her a follow on your favorite social media avenue. So press play for a little road music to go along our journey…
We were driving down this one road that we had turned down that was off the 86 when I spotted water. I made Hubby pull over so I could take a few photos. Truly the view and landscape of Coachella Valley look like a jigsaw puzzle.
The fields have always hypnotized me whenever we drive around the Valley with their intricate lines that seem to roll as you whiz by on the freeways or streets.
The last time that we had tried to venture into Box Canyon was during the last Lyrid meteor shower a month ago. The road had been closed under the order of Riverside County due to the Covid-19 shut downs. Was I upset? Nah. Did it make me hate the governor of California for wanting to protect us? No. I was just kind of miffed caused there was no place to pee. I knew in due time it would reopen and we could freely travel through there again.
It was a nice, short trip. Just what I needed to silence the outside world and current events for just a moment. I took that time to work on my interviewing skills. Working with Hubby has its drawbacks. I am what people call “thinned skinned”. I sometimes don’t get his dry, sarcastic humor. Sometimes, it scares me, he scares me. I clam up and can’t speak or function. Anyhow, glad that he is my first subject because if I can get through one with him and make it decent then I can work with just about anyone. He really is knowledgeable and gives great feedback. He does remind me of my Dad in his no-nonsense thinking at times that keeps me from straying into bad places. Hopefully, I will have the video edited and ready soon that I shot yesterday. I will include a bit of the practice interview.
Thank you dear reader for the visit. Where ever in the world you are today take a deep breath, because you can. Where ever you are going get there safely. Hugs…
