We say farewell to Palm Springs, to its outstanding film festival, its balance of stalwart patriotism and ironic kitsch,
its natural wonders, such as
the desert and
hummingbirds (as common as houseflies -- and harder to swat!)
And white doves of peace, escapees from a wedding at the Wyndham and regularly fed by the attentive hotel staff.
We will never forget the endless hiking trails.
And, of course, the women!
As they say in Palm Springs, Cherchez les femmes!
Many thanks to the Palms Springs Film Festival for inviting us.
