Snowbird

Alas, our winter stay has almost ended. We will miss you friends and neighbor, mountains and desert, palo verdes and mesquite, road-runners and coyote. Just a month now and we'll be back to our Chicagoland home. People ask, why do we return to our area of birth?  We tell them that we miss the flatness of the land and the humidity and most of all the mosquitoes. But when the coolness comes once again to the windy city, we will return to our beautiful and awesome mountains that encircle our desert home. Until then good friends, we bid you adieu.

—John Silva
