I recognized this image from your WP (and FB) post a few days ago... I LOVED your writeup and I could really feel what you were talking about - I tried to write a comment on WP but messed up my password and I always forget it so i gave up:-) Anyway, this is Such a beautiful scene, Gary. Deserts hold a certain kind of spiritual energy that just enters the soul so easily...and, to me, Your work is always at the center of this .
