Silver Lining: the desert

the desert

I used to think the desert was boring and dead. It's not.

It's full of colors, and it's alive. Animals, smells, sights, sounds, colors. There's an energy that pulses from the desert, and you can hear it just by standing still, and listening.

Photo by me, color swatch created here.

    When I was your age (Ha!) I used to go desert camping all the time with my bff. I even wrote children's stories based on desert flora and fauna!

  9. I love that color swatch idea. I've never been to Arizona, but I've been to New Mexico twice and really liked it. You're right, it's the total opposite of Portland!
