Driving with husband in his new over-the-road bus to be converted into a PinewoodDerbyWorkshop...
There is deep peace and deep isolation as we cross the Mojave Desert.
the mountains and sparse vegetation vie a sense of largeness, with lots of spaces for the eye to wander.
During our long ascents and descents, my husband adjusts to a lower gear in our 47-passenger bus (soon to become a mobile woodshop).
The changes in greens, whenever there is a little bit more of it, are dramatic.
The gray-greens, sand-browns and lava-blacks outline long stretches of contour.
The cacti that are beginning to appear feel like a celebration.
There is room for contemplation over the geologic upheaval which caused the Pacific Basin to recede to what is now the California coastline.
Big changes across eons of time.
