out of focus

I flew back to Phoenix, oh, it's some weeks ago. It was a surreal move somehow. This year has flown by so fast, it was hard to keep it in focus.

Out of focus airplane window shots are my favorite, by the way


I made good progress on a new shawl during the flights. It was late, and I was too brain dead to do anything else. The rhythmic back-and-forth, back-and-forth can be so soothing.


I got back to Phoenix just after that crazy dust storm of a few weeks ago. The whole city was left hot and gritty and strange. Suitably surreal given my mindset, I suppose. And it made for some beautiful western sunsets to welcome me home ...


If you peer closely, you can just make out Isis against the silhouette of Piestewa Peak.

So much to catch up on. But summer brains move slowly ...
