Desert visions

Today I started the long drive home from Southern Arizona. I spent all day driving through the desert—Southern Arizona, Central Arizona, then Southern California. There’s something about the monotony of the landscape that seems to heighten and dull your senses at the same time. After a while you’re not quite sure whether you’re wide awake or deep in a dream—a fever dream.
