It was 75 degrees today...and I felt cold. I don't remember my days in Utah, D.C. or Colorado - universes away from my present. I once despised the desert, longed for anywhere but. Then I spent a summer in Japan. My breath was stolen by the sheer green of the place, the crazy angles of mountain on mountain. But I missed the flat brown and red rock in a way that felt like hunger. I'm Arizona. Who would have guessed.
