December 11, 2018: Desert Sky

“No one within a mile of our tent, or if others are here,

They’re afoot in sneakers, toting an old fashioned tripod and camera

Wondering where to set up, how to capture the hour,

This silence deep in the canyon,

Someway to show their children n distant cities

That this, this is where time stood still.

Eden in the blink of an eye."

––Walt McDonald: This Could Be Eden

Life hugs to rocky places in an apocalyptic Joshua Tree landscape
