The Desert itself is refreshingly Delicious, Comforting, and especially Nourishing!

If beauty is relief from monotony, as my art teacher Dorothy Ives used to tell me, then I’ve found true beauty in many arid landscapes, just as I did today southwest of Ajo, Arizona:

“The desert itself is a place that can be refreshingly delicious, comforting, and nourishing as long as you find ways to stay hydrated and shaded. It is a place where sound travels like nowhere else on earth. It is a place that can suddenly become luminous because of the particular optical qualities of its wondrously glorious light. It indeed a bright and shining place, not a dull or monotonous one.”
