A-Z Challenge; M is for Mountains


A to Z Challenge: M is for Mountains

One of the things I really miss about living in Texas is the lack of mountains. Not that Texas doesn’t have mountains. It does. Just not where I live. The mountains are 10 hours away, to the west, and even then they are not spectacular. When I lived in New York, we really had mountains. To the north were the Adirondack Mountains. To the south were the Catskill Mountains of Massachusetts. To the east were the Berkshire Mountains. To the Northeast were the Green Mountain of Vermont. These were all real mountains with tall peaks and crags and places to ski and bobsled runs. The things one normally finds in mountains. And snow. Lots of snow in the wintertime. The winter Olympics were held twice in the Adirondack Mountains. That says something about their legitimacy as mountains. Texas has no claim as far as mountains go. Texas has many things going for it but mountains is not one of them.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
