It is 11:00 am as of this writing, and several days of extremely cold, windy weather have finally given way to 52° weather. I can’t tell you what a relief this is. Just as I had begun to despair of there ever being a break, it came without warning. We were socked in by fog earlier today, and it was impossible to tell the difference between the fog and the layer of clouds that had afflicted us for several days. In a matter of minutes, the desert has heated up by at least 30 degrees. I have opened the doors to heat up the inside of the house, which has retained a temperature that is actually colder than it now is outside.
I am always looking for things that this environment can teach me, and I am reminded today that one should never despair and give up. Do not allow the fog to fool you. No matter how bleak and hopeless the present moment may seem, things never remain the same. Everything in life is constantly changing.
Sometimes for the better. Sometimes for the worst. But change it will. You can count on it.
