Tucson. May, 2005

All smiles I was, standing here on the five acres that Jay and I had bought with a hope that we’d build a retirement home on it. Well, I’m retired now. And Jay is about to be. And we realize we don’t have the energy or inspiration that we once had to undertake a massive project like that. Just clearing the protected Saguaro cactus according to exhaustive regulations seems mind-boggling. And so, our land is up for sale. And, perhaps, may even be sold by the time you read this. [It is.] I am reminded of something a wise friend once told me: Just because you like something, doesn’t mean you have to own it. Fortunately, my Tucson friends Simon and David welcome house guests. For now anyway.
