Desert Love

When I tell people from other climes that I'm from the Sonoran Desert, I love interpreting their reactions. A slight wince means they define "desert" as sand and thorns. A half-hearted grin means, "oh yeah... my cousin lives there... she has a pool ... it's not half bad." My favorite, though, is that eloquent knowing smile shining from the eyes, saying, "I've been there, and the sun has warmed my soul."
