With my new novel, Lone Wolf, nearing publication, I’m inspired to drive to West Texas and revisit the really small town of Valentine (population 217!), where some of the action takes place. It’s a beautiful desert landscape. The sky, at night, is as dark as I’ve ever seen it, the stars shining brighter than I’ve seen them shine anywhere else.
Also, I have a painting to deliver, and it’s definitely time for an adventure. I was in the mood today to dream of such things.
The weather changed. It got cold out of a sudden. Not the sad and depressing kind of cold, though, but nice rainy weather to get cozy in, to make some chili and dream of road trips and Airstreams and desert skies.
