I wrote this a few years ago, and was reading it tonight from a past journal. I am reposting it here to share. I hope that anyone who is feeling lonely tonight will read these words and feel comforted by deeper feelings. When I am sad, that is when I write my best thoughts and it’s when I dream my best dreams. Life is too short to take for granted. We all need beauty and love and we all need a friend that is willing to listen.
Out There on the Desert
When I go into the desert on some remote highway, I am there by myself and surrounded by so much beauty. This is stolen land! Once people use to dwell here. but now they are somewhere else. They are no longer here.
This makes me real sad inside. As I am sitting on the edge of some cliff, I watch the sun go down and reflect its last light over the red sandstone and I can feel the old ways that were once here. The sun is something even more personal way out here! It has a spirit that talks to you!
Every day I am wondering what is going to happen to this little world. I go on these trips alone and the anger disappears. I only want what is peaceful. I always ponder about those old days that happened so long ago. it is the way it was.
