Springtime is here. Growing up, that meant Texas Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Mockingbirds, and allergies. Living in Florida, these springtime icons weren't there. Now, living in Arizona and experiencing my first official "Spring", I am sad to say that these things are not so present here either....except for the damn allergies.
Everything is in full bloom here. My nose has been doing more running than I have in the last two months. Sad...sniff...sniff.
I really miss Texas. There is no sense of identity like there is in Texas. I remember going back a few years ago and seeing a bumper sticker on a huge super-lifted Chevy pickup truck that said "If you ain't Texan, you ain't SHIT." I remember feeling all warm and fuzzy inside...Native Texans carry a pride that many other state natives don't. I hope we end up back "home" again one day...
I miss the great running in the San Antonio and north Dallas areas. I took some pictures last summer and needed to post them...enjoy!
