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

Here’s a little personal reflection, consternation, gratitude, with a little nod at prison reform thrown in the mix. Its a little heavy, but it is Suicide Prevention Month. Let’s explore the need for second chances. “Magnum”, my husband came home a little disturbed. Normal for most husbands, I know and even more common for a […]

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.

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. […]
