the first time i went to the desert i understood this magical pull it can have on a person. that energy that people talk about... i got it. i loved the bone dry healing heat. the soft hued pinks + pales greens of the landscape. it had an alluring draw on me + from my first visit i knew i wanted to spend more time there... as a recent belated birthday present to myself i returned for two days of utter solitude. life's been maddening these last few months... its been chaotic. + loud. + full of uncertainties + unknowns. i wanted to gift myself some peace + quiet. some alone time.
i turned 33 last week. never one to have too much constancy in life, the rug's being pulled out once again + things are churning... changing. this will be a year of great changes. so i wanted a minute to pull it all in. to think. to breathe. there's no more perfect place than the desert. here's a few photos from my getaway. i found the most perfect oasis + really didn't want to leave. get yourself to the desert if you can. there's a magic there unlike anywhere.
