I moved back to the desert for a reason. This is one of many.
There’s a quality to the light, to the landscape and skies, that amazed me when I first moved here sixteen years ago. I love the monsoon rains, the mountains, the clouds. They say that nature does all of the hard work, and all you have to do is be there to capture it. There’s some truth to that. But it’s so easy to take our experiences for granted. When we see the same landscape, the same sky, the same friends, the same lover – when we see it every day, we appreciate it less.
Being an artist is recognizing this tendency, and never taking anything for granted.
This is all temporary, and it’s all incredibly amazing. I love being here, and I am in love with life.
