It is Monday in Tonopah, AZ

It has been a beautiful clear day and now the sun is setting. I am sitting at our table, as I start to write this post, looking out the window I can see the sun hitting the tops of the mountains towards the north and the sky is turning a light pink along the edges of the horizon all around us. I love this time of the day when everything takes on a soft glow. The noise of the day seems to quiet down. Even the birds’ chirping seems softer.

Earlier as we sat outside this
white soft cloud went floating by.

The soft pink glow surrounding us this evening.

I walked out to the edge of the road
and was rewarded with this view of tonight's sunset.

 Now to step back in time, a few days, to do some “blog catching up”.

We took a drive over to Quartzsite, La Posa South LTVA to be more exact, to attend the 2nd Annual Bloggerfest, a casual gathering of bloggers.

After we gathered our chairs in somewhat of a circle George, who I believe was the main organizer of this event, started the day by introducing himself and his wife Suzie then telling us a little bit about who they are. (Fulltimers from Ontario, Canada with the blog Our Awesome Travels) He then asked everyone else to take the time to do the same. The rest of our time together was spent chatting and getting to know a little about each other. It was a fun, interesting time putting faces to and talking with people whose blogs Tom and I have read.

I did take a few pictures at the beginning but then I started talking with people and the thought of taking pictures did not enter into my thought process again.

Afterwards we decided to drive farther out in the
dessert and eat our dinner.
This is the spot we called home for ten days last year.
So we knew we would have a fantastic view.

The sky slowly turning a beautiful pink as we headed back
towards Quartzsite. A perfect ending to a perfect day.
We then turned East on I 10 and home to the Crusader.

At the beginning of this post I mention how I loved the softness of the end of the day.

I also find it special to watch the sunrise and the day awaken. Everything seems to come quickly into bright crystal clearness and the sounds of the birds chirping is loud and clear.

Here at this RV park we do not have a view of the sunrise, to many RV’s between us and the eastern sky. One thing that I find really beautiful, is watching the sun dance in the palm trees as it climbs in the sky. It looks to me like little lights twinkling between the palms.

I cropped the picture and enlarged it. If you look at the tips of the
palms in the picture you can see what looks like tiny lights.
When there is even a soft breeze they twinkle and dance in the morning sun.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep the hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
