Mojave Phone Booth
Santa Anna winds lash out at me as my Jeep bounces through the ruts cleverly disguised as a road. Ahead the desert sun glints off a glass structure like a laser-flash. It glimmers like a mirage as I approach. The lonely object stands like a sentinel among the Joshua trees. I park beside it and wait, listening for a call from beyond. I wonder who will call, and from where upon the globe, to the world’s loneliest phone booth, languishing amidst the Mojave…

Dubbed ‘world’s loneliest phone booth’ or ‘Mojave phone booth,’ among other terms, the lone phone booth cast out into the Mojave Desert caught the imagination of Netizens world-wide. (Continued in next post: Mojave Phone Booth Continued)
