ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL MORNING IN THE DESERT

Oct 4th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

When we lived here in the 80′s and 90′s, we were employed and occupied by normal distractions of normal days. I don’t think we were so aware of the mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets that stunningly repeated themselves day after day in the spectacular Sonoran Desert.

Now, in retirement and with a second chance at being more alert to our surroundings, it is clear why so many choose to make Arizona home. The politics, like many places, leave a lot to be desired, but oh that landscape.

Now in our first week, we are still unpacking and reorganizing our lives around a simpler lifestyle, a reduced demand from many sides, and a new kind of living choice. We brought my 92 year old Mother along with us.
