    and I hate how people have come to view it.

    I lived in London, New York, and S Florida.  As well as short stints in Portugal, Australia and Spain.

    I came out here about 15 years ago, and ohmigod, it is the most beautiful place on earth.

    I am a cynic, but I feel a connection with the nature I feel all around - nature that is just clinging to life.

    So I moved out here on 2.5 acres about 8 years ago,

    From my front and back decks, I can see wilderness all around.  The road to my house is not paved.  All around me is native plants and animals.  And I see much more than when I lived in concrete jungles.

    I have more nature here in the desert than in the cities.  I watch rabbits, snakes, coyotes, packrats and all other creatures pass by my window daily.  And I marvel at their ability to survive here.

    My husband and I have gone exploring all the aboriginal sites, and we have learned so much from the people who have come before us.

    Here, of all the places I have lived, I feel connected with the earth.

    I am marginally aware that many of my neighbors are only here because they found Boca Raton too liberal.  And I am sad for them.

    And I will work against them.

    But that does not make Arizona bad.  

    It makes the idiots who live here that do not learn from their surroundings bad.

    We will not win by boycotts in the long term.

    We will win by people like me moving out here.
