Few things cause my mind to wander quite like driving across the seemingly endless expanse that is the American Southwest. As a kid, one of my favorite television programs was Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and the opening theme song to the series pilot contains a haunting question:
Long before this life of mine, long before this time. What was there, who cared to make it begin? Is it forever, or will it all end? Searching my past for the things that I’ve seen, is it my life or just something I dreamed?
And I have searched far and wide, from the Wayward Pines-like town of Moab, Utah to the out-of-this world burg of Roswell, New Mexico, and through the wind-swept streets of Lubbock, Texas on the Llano Estacado. And even across the seas. The answers yet elude me. Perhaps I am not meant to find them. Perhaps none of us are.Published in
