Forecast

Tucson in June. Seek shade, cool and sweet, like this pocket in my front yard.

When desert heat
Permeates
Beats
Threatens to defeat

Seek shade
Quiet
Retreat
then
wait patiently
for rain

*Although it was not always the case, I love Tucson summers. The snowbirds and students leave us with much quieter roads and great summer rates at restaurants and resorts. Even more important, I’ve learned how to live here. I adore early mornings, sunrises, sunsets and cool nights. During the middle of the day, I retreat. I paint, I write, see movies, read books. It’s a lovely existence, really.
