There’s an irritating sameness to a desert landscape. At least to the untrained eye, like mine was.
And what little green there is if it hopes to survive has to suck water from stone.
But traveling to unfamiliar places, like looking at good art, can teach the blind to see. Even a desert landscape – when you’re patient, when you allow it to – can take on a personality all its own.
Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children.
