Rising over the purple hills of Arizona

I go through phases…reading in spurts.
So these are some of the books I recently read…"Sister of My Heart" nourished some part of me which was seeking connection with my Indian self…And nourished it did. After, I finished reading it I moved on to "The Namesake"…very well written, could see glimpses of me…..
"Lucifer Effect" had a very interesting viewpoint on the terrorism and how youth dedicate their lives to it…choose death over life, by psychologist Philips Zimbardo and lastly "Year of Magical Thinking"…on loss and grieving by Joan Didion…again a great read.
Oranges, great taste and refreshing fragrance….
When I first saw orange trees lining the streets in Arizona, I was impressed, and than I learned that these were ornamental orange trees. The fruit is very bitter to taste and the tree itself is not very hardy. And you can imagine by disappointment and bewilderment.
So, why would one plant bitter tasting fruit trees, and not the edible kind? Beats me…any guesses?

I am thinking of starting a series of posts with pictures and maybe some thoughts on few of things that I really enjoy.
I start with -SHOES!!
Never seem to have enough of them....
Yes, I know how very materialistic of me…. I enjoy them and offer no apologies…..

One of our favorite things is to go for drive during a rain or a snow storm. The snow storm on Christmas day was no exception… since the freeways were all jammed we took the back roads and were rewarded with breath taking beauty of the day.
Our trip made possible in part by the snow ploughs!! :)
