On the Road Again
I'm supposed to leave today for New Mexico. I'm dawdling. Not because I don't want to go; I very much do.
But there is a kind of inner resistance to driving through Arizona again. It creeps me out. Arizona is in the process of secession, and it is ruled by freaks on the loose.
360 miles through Arizona. The alternate route, through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado, is 360 miles longer. Another half-day on the road at least. And I haven't driven that route for decades.
May have to suck it up though.
What have we come to?
