Polar Opposites

Dateline: Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Time: 4:20 p.m.

Place: Airport parking, Detroit Metropolitan Airport

I’m standing ankle deep in charcoal grey frozen slush, a mixture of freezing rain and snow falling on my (once perfect) new haircut,  shivering convulsively in my apricot colored raincoat, peering anxiously toward the road hoping against hope to see the blue shuttle bus that will take us to the terminal for our flight to Phoenix, which is scheduled to leave in one hour.

Dateline: Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Time: 4:40 p.m.

Place: The patio, Canyon Villas, Scottsdale

I’m sitting at the umbrella table, bare feet propped on the chair in front of me, legs stretched out in the sun, sipping cold white wine, gazing in awe at the mountainous vista arrayed in all it’s lavendar glory in front of me, reading my book.

Which is the better day?

  1. Okay…and I am GREEN with jealousy — well, okay, it’s really just envy but still….sounds divine (the patio I mean, Arizona — not that crappy slush!!).

  2. The mountains in the southwest were created as a definition of awesome!! When we were in NM, I had a hard time looking anywhere but at them! Enjoy that nice dry, sunny weather.

  3. I can imagine the sun basking on you. Day 1 made day 2 all the more sweet, no? Gotta have those juxtapositions to help us appreciate the good times. Enjoy!
