Moving the Comment Box to the Top - My Wordpress Diary _ MyDesertLove.com

“Dear WordPress Diary . . . Finally figured out how to move the comment box above the comments!” Warning: just a little bit of css coding . . . and quite a bit of amateur winging it. I have been making changes – flying on the seat of my pants. Or however the phrase goes. […]

Tracks film review by MyDesertLove featured image

“Some nomads are at home everywhere.  Others are at home nowhere,  and I was one of those.”  Robyn Davidson I almost did it again. In my excitement, I was going to click “Publish” and realized I did not include a summary of the film. “If I know – certainly everyone has heard about it by […]

A Child Is Never Alone In My Desert

Quote by Frederick Douglass - It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men - Image by MyDesertLove.com

Desert Storms are Electrifying . . . and I love it.

Lightning quote featured on MyDesertLove.com

Why is the lightning so striking – even more dramatically visually striking in the desert? Maybe its the quiet nature of the desert. During the day the wildlife is in a much more subdued, rather sleepy state. All of a sudden the sun can be eclipsed with a cool rush of wind urging us to […]

There’s Burning Man in the Desert and the Art is Amazing.

Burning Man blog post featured img on MyDesertLove.com

I love Instagram, because I get peaks into all these worlds, all these events that I will probably never experience firsthand. Burning Man will definitely be one of them.

Be Alone and Maybe Naked in the Desert
