The desert sky was crisp and blue, the air hot and welcoming. We pulled into the Ace early in the afternoon and without missing a beat, headed straight for the swim club. “Laying out” wasn’t even a thought we entertained, the salt water ripples wrinkled the surface of the shimmering water and beckoned us to take comfort in it’s perfection.
“Is this real life?” I wondered, “Can this much harmony exist in the universe?”
The answer, dear reader, is yes.
Drinks and snacks were ordered and consumed, laughter and smiles shared. The sun shone bright over our happiness, as we basked in it’s glory and prayed for the day not to end.
There is something about sun and sky, desert and drinks earth, that creates magic. Especially when beautiful, joyous people join you there. A community, surfaced in the vastness.
