I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love the desert. I love the heat. I love the way the sun beats upon the earth. I love the dry weeds and the little bits of green that somehow survive with little to no water. I love how we can grow things in our bit of the desert by modern watering systems, and how the hills go the way of the earth and dry out long before the valley does. I love the red rock and the soil that belongs to it. I love the cracked bits of earth and the way they beg for moisture. I love the tumbleweeds that continue to exist, long after their time has passed. And I love incorporating all of these things into who we are and what we do. This is the world that surrounds us. Embrace it.
