"Water, water, water....There is no shortage of water in the desert but exactly the right amount , a perfect ratio of water to rock, water to sand, insuring that wide free open, generous spacing among plants and animals, homes and towns and cities, which makes the arid West so different from any other part of the nation. There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be."
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
Arizona .. as I leave you today, I leave glad that I came, solid that I will return, and concerned for your sustainability. I saw far less alternative energy than I thought I would, and still wonder every beautiful morning that I wake here, how it is that there is plenty of banter over the plethora of minerals and war machines that you are rich in here, but not much talk of the one you are the most destitute of... Water. You can't drink silver ore... And missiles and f-16's really aren't that tasty.
