There’s no denying it, summer time is here. For the next several months, we’ll hop from one air-conditioned spot to another, in the never-ending quest to escape the scorching heat. However, living in the Valley of the Sun does have its rewards. Aside from stellar sunsets, we are fortunate to have myriad staycation opportunities right in our own backyard. In fact, Arizona is home to nearly 70 AAA Four and Five Diamond lodging properties alone. And, as the temperatures rise, room rates often plummet, making a stay at one of these luxurious resorts a bargain.

It can be tricky finding a good restaurant that fulfills all your brunching desires. A good shade-to-sun ratio on the patio, a sweet-and-savory menu and, of course, daytime boozing are all necessary requirements.

I drove by the Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course the other day when the wind was up. It was odd to see dust blowing across the course. There was something forlorn about it. On the other hand, it seemed like the desert was reclaiming its own. On Ash Wednesday, millions of Christians received the sign on the cross on their foreheads in ashes with the admonition, “remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.” It is the spoken decree of God in Genesis 3:19 as Adam and Eve are tossed out of the garden. There is something powerful yet troubling about those words. I remember one year marking the cross on a beautiful baby and nearly choking on what seemed to be such a dark proclamation. She was not a year old, just how depraved could she be?
