We got up obscenely early in the morning to drive to Arizona. We were spending four days at MLB Spring Training and we wanted to get a jump on our six hour drive. Somewhere around our second hour, the sun started rising in the desert. Purple and yellow wildflowers were hugging the highway. Bob was asleep in the backseat. Mr. Rosenberg was making me laugh with an improvised Huell Howser-style bit about highway safety.

As we sped along, I looked out my window at the mountains, the desert, the light. I thought about how I'd made some bad choices in my life and also some excellent ones and all of them had led me to this one lovely moment.
