In response to my last post, about ambivalence and Texas, my brother emailed: “There are good people in good quantities just about everywhere.” Which is absolutely true, and I’m not ambivalent about the people there. Mainly I was thinking about how West Texas is sort of in the desert-y bit of the USA, and I come from the more rain-foresty bit, and I can get a whopper of a sunburn in about ten minutes. Also, I read in “The Bean Trees” about how you need to drink a lot of water in the desert or you’ll die or something, and I’ve posted before about how much I hate water.
On the other hand, I would have regular access to Mexican food. Okay, that settles it. I’ll start packing.
