He Will Return




I pull the keys out of the ignition and am instantly reminded just how quiet and empty it is out here. Twenty hours, the car's motor my only companion, seperate my new life from the desert and its easy to forget these things.

I've parked in the midst of ruins, somewhere north of Las Vegas, in the Nevada desert. From the graffiti it's obvious that this place has served as a waystion to travellers like myself for a long time. Crunching through the debris, strewn amidst the gravel, I wander through the concrete stonehenge around me.

My most recent trips into the desert have been different from those of the past. I'm a visitor here now. When I moved 1,000 miles away, into the swamp, I thought things could be the same when I came back. I was wrong.

A few days later I sat among old friends at our old hangout. For a moment, while the others talked and laughed, I thought to myself quietly, lost in self-reflection. why did I keep coming back? What was I looking for here now? I didn't have the answers.

Friends ask over phone calls and email messages when I plan on visiting, in the past I was full of assuarances that I'd come every chance I got. I'm less sure now and the time spent away streches on. One day I'll return. But it could be a while.
