Desert Journey

the immense desert, empty and inspired with spiritual promises

~

Like many Englishmen, from that green and pleasant land, I have a strong personal affinity for the desert.  I like the high plains and the heat of Red Rock Country in the late summer.  There is a simplicity about the desert, you are either right or you’re in deep trouble, and there’s little ground in-between.

And now, when England cowers cold beneath our autumn mists and morning frost, I yearn to be back in the blazing sunshine and heat of California, New Mexico, Arizona, or Nevada.  Preferably on a long spontaneous road trip, driving a Mustang convertible with a cool lady riding shotgun.

Sweetheart, yes it’s true, I’m so happy to be stuck with you

deep in red rock country

in that desert we pray to God

but we trust in ourselves as men

A Mustang in Arizona

No matter what life throws at me, at least I have a cool car.

In Arizona my rental is a Mustang.

wilderness imagination

The clearest way into the Universe is through the wilderness mountains.

~

leave the city of your comfort

travel into the wilderness of intuition

walk upon the hot virgin dirt

and let free your deepest imagination

no more pain degradation hurt

and your soul is one with all creation

deep in the lonely barren desert
