Cacti & Courage: A Phoenix Field Trip

"Here we are trapped in the amber of the moment.  There is no why."
~ Kurt Vonnegut 

I've been staring at the computer screen for several minutes, procrastinating by biting off chunks of Lindt chocolate, taking sips of hot tea, checking my Instagram feed, not knowing what to say about my trip to Phoenix, because there is SO much to say.  Like with any good story I guess I should start at the beginning, so here goes.
