My Heart is in Texas

From the moment I set foot in Texas, some ten years ago now, she has held a special place in my heart. There is something about the scent of her air, the vast expanse of her sky, the beauty of her unending land.

John Steinbeck once wrote, “Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession.” If you have been there and been enchanted by her, you know this.

My heart is in Texas today, with prayers that the fires end soon.
