An adventure of my life time!

DSC00988'

If you asked me a month ago, I would tell you that I was going to stay in Sedona, forever, unless my land lady “kicked” me out. Well, she did—she raised the rent by 60%. I love Sedona, but I love to see the world as well. It is time to leave. She just gave me a push.

I can’t say enough good things about Sedona: Stunning red rocks all around it; Great weather that most people in other parts of the country would envy; Nice people and communities. In the past 13 months, not only I have seen so many spectacular sceneries, but also I have met so many great hikers (hiking groups), tenanted writers (writing salon), wonderful volunteers (Food Bank), and remarkable veterans (Coffee with Veterans Program). I am truly grateful to spend time in this amazing place. Hopefully, I will be back one day!

An ancient Chinese proverb translates as this: “There is no never-ending banquet under the sun.” It is time for me to part from the “party” and keep moving on. As a friend joked about it before, I am like a Tumbleweed. I have got stuck by the red rocks for more than a year. Now the wind is so strong, I am going to start “tumble” again. Where I am going to go next? Well, check my next blog in a few days. 🙂  “Red rock” won’t be the scene for a while.

    Are these new photo? They are really, really great.
    You should pick a few to send for some competition..

    • Thank you, Xiaoying. Some of them are new, but most I have posted before. When I settle down again in the future, I will think about competition. Too busy now. 🙂
