I have a special place in my heart for palm trees, because they remind me of my desert hometown.  Looking up at this one, with the sun beaming down through the palm fronds, I felt a sense of connectedness between my childhood home and my current home, my younger self and this weird, responsible, adult human I’m apparently becoming.  (When did THAT happen?)


  1. Pretty. Miss you here in our desert home.

    1. I miss you too, Mom! Excited to see you at Thanksgiving. :-)
