Passed a hill on the UTEP campus on the way to Kinley's House this morning, begging me to climb it. I ignored it for a few steps, then said to myself, "Why not? I'm not on anybody's schedule". So I did. A nice view of a part of Cd. Juarez, took a couple of photos. The back of the hill was all fenced off so I went down at a 90 degree angle to the way I'd gone up and walked back to the same street, Hawthorne, I'd been on. Goddamned fences. But I was flushed with a strange primal joy from just that short climb, and when I smiled at all the young college cuties, some smiled back.
