The desert…

“There is a quality about the desert that is unlike anything else I have encountered.  It creates the sensation of being utterly alone, with an extension of physical distance beyond which is the unlimited extension of time itself.  In this environment, the human mind is lifted out of itself, above the level of mundane existence, until one has the feeling of being cast out into a limitless world of endless space and time.”
