A morning text message reminded me that it's Bruce Chatwin's Birthday. I'm deep in his Australian desert adventure - which reminds me of my own dream to motorcycle across Australia (although at this point I am willing to trade it in for a Land Cruiser).
That reminds me of something I said several years ago - something about having a kid and then heading into the bush after 3 years in LA. I'm in the middle of that 3 years. I've had my metaphorical kid and it's growing up just fine. And now Australia calls again. Will this be the year for 40 days in the desert? Oh, I hope so.
By the way - Happy Birthday Bruce. You continue to inspire me.
