thoughts for the day

a little while ago i was reminded of some of the things i love about the schizophrenic valley i live in
understand i have a hate/love relationship to this place.. but every so often when i am really down on it - it does something to remind me of what i love..
I live in a small city... near one end of a string of small cities that follow the foothills of our mountains much of the length of our valley.. think of it rather like a string of beads, some shinier, some rougher than others.. .
The reason they were first put at the base of the mountains had to do with water availability in a rather harsh desert environment -and they are cities with city 'things' streets/traffic/crowding/sirens/dogs barking etc, etc
but every so often i am reminded how close the open desert really is.. t
Tonite was one of those times..
I live on a fairly busy road, so I hear vehicles  round the clock to the point of almost as white noise,
We hear sirens & big firetrucks nearly every day as we are an alternate route for them. So dead quiet is quite rare & very special....
one recent evening, in one of those very rare moments of stillness, 
just before dusk, 
I heard the coyote singing...
he made me smile...
