I have no idea why this city mouse loves West Texas - but I do. I love the cool morning air and the warm afternoon. I love the wheat colored brushy ground as it juxtaposes the calm, fluffy blue sky. I love the wide open space with mountains in the distance. I love the bumpy, gravel roads, the tumbleweeds, the windmills, the trains, the sounds of roosters, the red orange sunsets and the wide and bright starry skies at night. There's not much to do and things are closed most of the time. But certain people have certain places that speak to them....and for me, it's West Texas.
