The Stars At Night...

As the old songs goes "The Stars At Night Are Big And Bright, Deep In The Heart Of Texas"...FO' Real. Last week I must have been in the same area that inspired that song. I couldn't believe my eyes. We were about 20 miles for the Mexico border in a town with no real red lights. If I had only been listening to the new Coldplay CD I might have lost my mind!!! It felt as though I could have reached out and touched the black twinkling canvas.

In the 105 (F) heat I saw things that could have been mirages, but I wasn't alone. In less than a week's time I saw everything from rattlesnakes, cat size roaches and spiders, to a badger, scorpion, and a tame armadillo. Weird.

After a few days of the "rough" I am always ready to sleep in my bed, drive my car, and see one of my 6 local Starbucks. At this moment I feel more American than I have felt in a while. Not so sure that is a positive thing.
