Where do we go from here
That’s a very good question. A few of you asked that yesterday when I mentioned our time in the desert is almost over.
If you have been hanging around this blog for a while, you know that in between seasons, we go to Utah. Al still has his shop there, and we have some stuff still in storage there too. Al can work on custom orders if we get any, or make some pieces to take on the road with us to the next round of art shows. The problem is, we don’t like it, at all.
There is absolutely no where to park our house while we are there. Believe me, we have looked and looked. His shop is in Utah county, and it is the most RV UN-friendly place, ever. The first year after we sold the house we parked at the shop, and basically, that sucked. Even for just 2 months, it sucked. I call it red neck hell, and that doesn’t quite cover it. Last fall we parked in Al’s moms driveway. His dad had just passed away, he was in the middle of that big custom order, and staying close to her while we could seemed like the right thing to do.
When we go back in a couple of weeks, I have no idea where we will park. But we won’t have sunsets to see and admire, or scenery to see. In fact, there isn’t really much of anything to photograph there, and that always makes me sad.
There won’t be lovely evening walks either.
We want, need, have to sell this shop in order to relocate someplace were we want to be. We need a work space, even if it’s only for a few months out of the year. We are going to try and work on this when we go back the end of the month. (fingers crossed)
The upside is we get to see family again, both of ours, so that’s always good.
But I am going to miss the wild, quite places. The wandering forever, the crazy landscape that is the desert.
I am trying to absorb as much as I can in the next 2 weeks, but I am already sad about leaving.
