The Subtlety of the Desert
The desert is subtle rather than ostentatious. If you look closely at this rather sparse looking photo, you will see that the desert floor is carpeted with small daisy-like flowers. In the desert you have to look at the details or you will miss the entire message. It is too easy to dismiss the desert as a brown expanse under a blue sky, but that is like dismissing some people because they don't dress the way you think they should. The closer you look at people and the desert, the more interesting they become. You have to spend more time and slow down to get to know both people and the desert.
