See Clearly Now in the Desert on MyDesertLove.com

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone . . .” When I have a dark desert moment, I push it away with this song. The words are rays chasing away the shadows of my wasteful worries. “Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind . . . ” I remember when it […]

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.

An Ocotillo Obsession in My Artsy-Fartsy World

The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of. Leonardo da Vinci quote at MyDesertLove.com

**Warning: A little bit of a rant ahead** I have always been the excitable one in my family. “Its really not that good, Vi.” “What is the matter with you?” I like something, better yet – love something, I’m all a-tither! My puppies can relate – yes, I have an invisible tail. I’m confessing now. […]

My Desert Love Blog Guest Blogger Elizabeth A Garcia Home img 01

~ Originally Published on Elizabeth A Garcia’s blog: July 10, 2013 ~ When I first decided to get away for a while, I only meant to experience the west, not have it invade my heart and soul. Somewhere on the list of national parks and other places I couldn’t wait to visit was a vague […]

Someone told me the other day, "The world has gone crazy and there's no escaping it . . . " Maybe its the mama-optimism in me, but I just raised my eyebrows and my heart ached a little with pity. Have they driven down our quiet, sweet desert roads . . .
Here's an article & image from WSJ about Big Bend and in particular Marfa, "cinematic landscapes that stretch unbroken to the horizon; cowboys presiding over art galleries; and sunsets that, at the smog-free altitude of nearly 5,000 feet, were the prettiest I’d ever seen. . . "
