I would hate to spend my life traveling around the world, only to ignore what lies right outside my front door. And yet that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Until this past weekend, I had never actually taken a walk around the beautiful desert that I have lived in my whole life and just looked. Really looked. The way I would if I was in another country, eagerly trying to absorb every moment.
On this walk, I focused on the many different types of cacti that I saw in this particular area. Their subtle reds, greens, yellows, and purples… how could I have missed this?
