Today Bridget and I break camp and travel to a new camp in the desert. It’s a good place to read, relax, and enjoy the warm weather of the Southwest, plus the internet signal is great.
Several of my readers come to this blog in order to find boondocks, and it’s been a delight for me to share them. In order to protect my privacy I have to delay showing any photos of our camp until we move. Sorry about that.
I’m rethinking my blog these days. I am determined to find a way to protect this perfect life I am blessed with. I’ve been living a contradiction. I want privacy, yet I open up my life for public inspection. Up until recently I’ve been able to maintain this mix of privacy and openness.
It’s been suggested by a few readers that I delay posting my entries for several days. I know that won’t work. For instance, how could I write about meeting Butters and then pretend I don’t know the outcome while readers write comments wishing me luck in adopting him? The immediacy and honesty of my blog, two elements essential to my blog’s appeal, would be lost.

I’m hastily posting this entry in order to give us a new start. My blog could use a breath of fresh air.
It’s almost afternoon and Bridget and I haven’t gone on our morning walk yet!
The desert has a way of clearing one’s mind and reviving one’s spirit. Maybe the answer will come to me how to continue my blog without losing my joy and contentment.
THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING AMAZON FROM MY BLOG!
