11B12DB8-4A48-4C77-8453-C2CADD42C7C5“Novelist Larry McMurtry once said that Odessa, Texas, is the worst town on earth…

Driving to Monahans from Interstate 10 near Fort Stockton the view is all blue sky draped over dry brown scrub brush. Telephone poles march along the endless asphalt on the highway, and oil well derricks dot the landscape. There is a stark beauty to the desolation yet it feels as lonely as the end of the earth…

The hotel parking lot is crawling with oil workers wearing red coveralls with Halliburton patches sewed on them. There is an oil boom in Monahans for the first time in many decades. We check in at the front desk and ask for a recommendation for a restaurant with a decent wine list. There is no wine or liquor by the glass here, we’re told. Pizza Hut and the local Mexican restaurant serve beer, and that’s it.”
