Trying On New Mexico

I tried on New Mexico like trying on a coat in a department store.  First one arm, then the other and zipping up the front.  It fit, but I wasn’t too sure of the style, the color, the look.  New Mexico was so very different from New York, my home…everything seemed off – the colors were shades of brown with shocks of blue sky.  The style was cowboys with turquoise trims.  The look was wide open space with jagged mountains rimming the edges. The coat fit, but I wasn’t sure that I fit.  And I wasn’t sure New Mexico liked or even needed me.  And then there was all the things I missed.  Saltwater, of course, not a drop to be had here.  And the food I love – Chinese.  I missed Chinese food a lot.

My new friend knew I missed home and he tried very hard to offer glimpses of what I missed.  Chinese Food…No problem.  We have Chinese Food…Let’s go to LUCKY BOY! lucky boy 002
