I entered a blog post on my "Gaining Equilibrium" blog (sheesh there are too many "i's" in that name) in the Scribbit Write Away Contest and won an Honorable Mention.
Here's what I wrote:
I have never been lost before. Disoriented, purposeless, confused, but this dark wandering feeling is new to me.
A million stars smock their light across the sky, but the light is lost before it reaches us, into an infinite darkness. Shapes loom--cliffs, rocks, jutting sandstone darker than the dark enveloping us. Fourteen of us are wandering, hoping that we will find our car.
We are lost in the San Rafael Swell- a beautiful and desolate desert. Far away from anything, I cling to Mike’s eternal, indefatigable optimism.
