Beauty is found in the desert in the most simplest ways that touch the senses. During this Christmas season I’ve been privileged to see these simple desert beauties, treasures of a friend.
Relaxing in the desert takes you away from the fast pace of the city. Just a few hours spent in the desert with friends recently made me feel very aware of nature’s beauty. In the first photo I was taking in the contrast of desert sand and mountain snow. That gorgeous colorful rock in the second photo amazed me. I absolutely love natural colors like that. The swing in the next photo brings one word to mind: relaxing. The cat and I quickly became friends. It’s a very loving cat that stands on its hind legs to be noticed.
Nature -whether desert sand, rocks, or a cat – brings joy to the heart, especially when one is not in a hurry. Sitting in a swing in the middle of the desert with your shoes kicked off brings a sense of relaxation. Well, maybe the shoes should stay on lest a snake notice the feet. However, snake skins do make nice pieces of art. But that’s another story we’ll save for a later date.
Find the beauty in your Christmas season.
