Sound travels far in the stillness of the desert, although there may be no one around to hear it. Here, in deserty SoCal, I was listening for signs of celebration after counting down to 0 last night last night as the Gators won the championship. No Gainesville cheer penetrated the serenety of lizards under rocks taking shelter from the cool night. I think you all know I am not a big football fan but who can resist the charge of a city exploding with celebration? I miss you all and hope you are enjoying the festivities!
