Sunshine and the desert air

A family friend is ill, home now, but unable to eat or drink. Even still, he asked to accompany me to the farmer's market today. We walked a short distance. Bought some vegetables. I could tell he was tired.

I asked if he was up for a drive and unveiled my plan for a scenic loop. We headed east, and I confessed I'd gotten the idea from Heidi. "The movie?" he asked.

"Yeah. As a kid I always wondered: how's that possible, how does a summer in the Alps heal the cousin's illness?"

We drove with the windows down, and inhaled the desert air. A crafty herbalist will use what's at hand.
