Life is short
how short,
who Knows?
Enjoying
the time
maybe
the only
thing
that matters.

Yesterday I was walking into Sabino Canyon to teach 1st-grade students how the Hohokam lived in the canyon and the Tucson basin hundreds of years ago when a friend spotted a red-tail hawk atop a tall saguaro cactus. Sadly, I didn’t have my Nikon camera with me, so I made use of my iPhone to capture an image. Not what I would like to capture, but it’s better than not getting an image at all.

We spent the day
driving in the rain
from Houston to Ft. Stockton,
before that
five days of no sun.

This posting
is in preparation
for our return to
the Sonoran Desert
and springtime.
