I've tried so many times to try and explain the feeling in the air in Arizona.

I could never explain it. I can't comment on the feeling in Northern Arizona, as I didn't get out of the car driving by Flagstaff. But I felt it in Phoenix, Tucson, Tombstone, Sedona, etc.

I felt it more as I was out by the deserty areas, but I could feel it everywhere I was.

I believe there was a discussion on this before, but does/did anyone feel the same feeling in the air in Arizona, or is it just me?

Hmmm, you told us when you feel it, "out by the deserty areas", but you never actually tell us what it is your feeling?

Kind of hard to say if we ever "felt" it if you never tell us what the heck you're feeling.

Maybe I missed something...

Like I said, I can't explain it:

It's just a feeling in the air that's different than anywhere else I've been. I just don't want to seem insane or something, so I came here for reassurance.

Since you can't describe it in any way whatsoever, I have no idea whether I have experienced it or not. You can't just say "it's a feeling in the air" and expect us to understand what you are talking about. You have to give us more than that.

Maybe the sand/dust in the air, either that or the high pollution.

I can reassure you...you are in fact insane.

No, it's not just you. You come from a heavily forested and wet area. I think everyone always feels excited when they go to a new/different place.


Or......maybe you were in a "vortex".?
