Desert Island

Death Valley
Death Valley

Whoooeeee!  I feel like I’ve just been rescued from a desert island — this is the first time in six days that I’ve had internet access.  Without the internet, I was beside myself.  I felt so isolated:  What to do?  What am I missing?  How am I going to get my “work” done?  I found so much time on my hands that I even emptied the dishwasher.

If you want to experience isolation, visit Death Valley, California.  Filled with a variety of vegetation, rock formations and breath-taking vistas, Death Valley is about as lonesome a place as you can get on this planet.  If not for the main road, you would think this place had never seen the hand of man.

It’s good to be back in full communication with the rest of the world.  Just think how unfulfilled your life would be if you couldn’t read this blog.  Thanks for reading.

One thought on “Desert Island

  1. Larry,

    How did we ever live without internet! Glad you are back online again.

    Have you ever read “Mutant Message Down Under” by Marlo Morgan? Probably not, as it’s more of a woman’s book. Anyway, we’re reading it in our book group and it’s a true story, told as a novel, about the author being taken on a “walkabout” across Australia by a tribe of aborigines. Talk about desert and isolation…and how to survive. One of the other ladies in our group also read, Bill Bryson’s book, “In a Sunburned Country” for contrast.

    Winter slogs on in your part of the country. Larry said that Ray had lost power with his last storm.

    Rain here, but otherwise, it’s been mild. We have been so busy, though, with all the “projects” and look forward to a break in May.

    I am missing my February “special” time with you, Verna, and Mom. It doesn’t seem possible she has been gone two months, already. Thank you for sending the box of cards and relaying all the financial details to us. You kept your promise to Dad to take care of Mom and you did it beautifully.

    Lots of love,
