I took this picture from my balcony yesterday. My twelve year old son saw this picture in my phone and said, "Mom, where is that, that looks like the desert!!!" Was he in denial that he lives in the middle of the Sahara Desert? Hmm, I am wondering if in his acculturation process, somewhere he formed a survival mechanism in his mind of being somewhere else or did a picture bring home the reality of his environment? He is standing here actually laughing at himself as I type this.
