El Paso, TX.

For me, El Paso is the perfect city and I am lucky to live here.  Others may disagree and I would argue that they are mistaken.  But I won’t argue.  

Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner, my absolute favorite time of year.  Some will say it’s hot, I will say passion should be hot.  Some will say El Paso has nothing to offer to them, I will say they have nothing to offer to the city.  

Some will say they hate this place, but this place will always love them.  The people that proclaim their “hatred” know this.

“There are cooler cities,” they say.  But none more genuine.  

“El Paso has a small town mentality,” they say.  But they are small minded.  

“El Paso is boring,” they say.  They have chosen to be bored.    

El Paso welcomes all, even people who’d rather be welcomed elsewhere.

Spheroidal and rosette aggregates of Rhodochrosite microcrystals that have a very vivid and uniform pink color. They are on matrix, with tetrahedral Tennantite-Tetrahedrite series crystals with very well-defined extraordinarily bright faces and edges.
