Moving on Down the Road to Prescott Arizona

I'm on the road right now, relocating to Prescott, Arizona. At least, that is the plan. That is where I am right now, in the Prescott Library with 17 minutes remaining.

I have made a full commitment to my art and writing. Tucson did not seem to be the right place for me in terms of furthering my art career. So, I packed up the car and Sir Kitty and hit the road for Prescott.

As I entered town on Tuesday evening, it was like watching a Frankenstein movie. A valley was visible, forming a V in the center of two mountains with the road going right between them. A storm was brewing with big gray clouds. I was a little frightened. That's where I'm headed? Blue skies where I am right now, just before the entry. Lightening bolts from both sides of the V... Whoa!

I entered as I continued on my road path. A flash flood made it impossible to hear the friendly GPS woman announcing where to turn. It was raining so hard, I could not see. Sir Kitty planted himself behind my back between me and the seat, hunching me toward the steering wheel. Then, my phone, along with my beloved GPS, died.

So, there I was, not a clue as to where I was. All I knew was that I had arrived at my new destination of Prescott, Arizona. I had never even visited the place before. I drove around and around, trying to get my bearings from whence I came. Then, I passed the cutest downtown with town square.

As the rain dissipated, I looked up and was totally amazed. There a full double rainbow hugging my new town. This was no ordinary rainbow. It was the brightest rainbow I have ever seen. And it lasted forever.

So, my art supplies are still in Tucson. I'm looking for a place to live. I'm scouting the area. I'm trusting that Prescott will prosper me.

Until Next Week
