We returned from Tucson last Friday.  Last Thursday night, we were working at my wife's cousin's house near Tucson and, as I was putting ladder away, I noticed the tail end of the sunset and grabbed this picture.  It was just hand held with a cheap camera leaning against their garage wall.

Almost every time I'm in Tucson, I'm treated to several of these sunrises and sunsets.  Almost every day.  It's hard to take.

I've not been able to blog as frequently lately.  I've become distracted with another project I'll write about later this week but I hope to, eventually, get back to a regular contribution here.  I've really been commenting on others' blogs and, well, it just feels selfish to not put anything back into the blogging etherspace.

On the other hand, Saturday morning my mind woke me up at 2:30 a.m. and reminded me that "something has to change in my life by 1/1/10."  I'm at the end of my rope and a little further financially so, well, God has to do what God does.  That (most likely) involves:
  1. I am directed to someplace I can contribute something
  2. Somewhere, money will come as a consequence of that
It really is just that simple, I think.

I'm looking in want adds.  I'm "networking" (gawd, I've come to hate that term).  I'm telling the truth about our needs and desires.  I'm more open to new adventures that I think I ever have been.  Here, there, anywhere for anything.

Mostly, I'm in just sort of a state of amused anticipation of what could happen next.

But. that morning the committee in my head was having none of what I'm trusting will work itself out in the next 2 weeks.

I know I'm not alone - either with my challenges or with the itty-bitty-s---y-committee between my ears.

Exciting, no?

Your pics of Tucson ignited the pics I have in my head of the great sunsets and sunrises I experienced there.
My post of a few days ago was a poem of one of my most favorite places and memories; the Sabino Canyon and my run to the top at sunrise one morning.
I pray something will break for you as they did for me since my stay there.

I think that God wants me to take action and not just sit back and wait. I have learned that I need to take care of my self, my needs. Nothing will be accomplished if I simply stick my head in the sand and pretend that all will go well. I see that happening to a friend of mine and his denial of responsibility. It is very sad. Thanks for posting. The sunset is lovely.

It is exciting indeed.

And Arizona sunsets are awesome. I need to go there soon.
