The reason for this insomnia is unclear, but it is certainly not welcome for the sun will rise and a day will need to be spent. I do not wish to spend it in a slumber. However, after the seventeen-hour excursion today, one might consider it justified.
Since the rest I so urgently desire is unavailable, I will instead comment on the trip.
Snowflake was a town which has the bluest skies and the most beautiful clouds. I couldn’t help but notice this because of the lack of looming mountains which can impede a view of such sights. Though it is a town that a visit to may be nice, I would not want to live there…the same would go for all of the towns we passed between here and there. There were a few photograph-worthy moments along the way, but these still lay within the solitary confines of my camera, and I do wish to walk across the room to retrieve it so as to upload them. This I plan to do later today, or perhaps even tomorrow.
Originally, my plan was to leave later today for the familiar sweeping landscape of the San Rafael Swell. I miss that place, I long to be there…the place where I can close my eyes and hear the world around me, arrayed in spotlessness. I think, perhaps, I will instead leave on Thursday or Friday. I need to have at least one more visit with my aunt and cousins, and there is one more photoshoot I need to make for my friend, Michelle.
The desert will wait for me…it always does.
I do need to make yet another attempt at sleep. I will leave this post until later today and will plan to finish it.
Until I wake…
