Utah Wandering


Utah road

 

I’ve lived a lot of places, but I’ve never lived out here, in the desert of Utah. I wonder what it would be like, to wake every day to this. It looks like simple starkness in all direction, but looks can be deceiving. We drove past a man walking down the highway–on the wrong side of the road I might add, he should be walking against traffic. Not that it matters, with so few cars. We’ve only passed maybe 10 so far this morning, including all those in town where we stopped for gas, coffee, and the bathroom. I forgot to brush my teeth. The man was miles from the nearest building, at least a 30 minute drive from our direction, 5 miles in the other according to the sign he passed. It’s just after 8 a.m. Where is he going, and where did he come from?

This is a long road to walk to get to nowhere in particular, and probably even longer to get to somewhere specific.

    • My siamese-attached-at-the-pinky-finger twin-from-two-separate-parents was along with me when I wrote this. Obviously, as I never go to Utah without my twin (other than those three times I was there with other people…). In my defense, this was before I knew I had a siamese-pinky twin, so those don’t count.
