Desert Stories: Migration

Migration

The photograph I've used for this "picture-story" is by my friend Stu Jenks in Tucson, Arizona, reproduced here with his kind permission. Please visit Stu's Fezziwig Press website and blog to see his beautiful, subtly spiritual work. (More information on the photo, "Lone Saguaro on the Arizona Trail," is here.)

The words were written at a time when I was traveling like a migrating bird between homes in Devon and the Arizona desert. These days I'm rooted more strongly here in Devon...but oh, the desert still calls....

Delicious.

This is wonderful, as all your pictures stories have been. The phrase "story passed from palm to palm" is ringing in me still...

A deeply "present" set of words - strung into a beautiful, beaded story-necklace. I second the first comment,
delicious.

Thank you, everyone.

I love remembering the desert in this way :) Thank you...
You might enjoy a tale I have carried in my own heart for a long while-- PK Price's "Navigational Information for Solo Flights in the Desert" (from "Solo: On Her Own Adventure", a wonderful anthology (!) edited by Susan Fox Rogers). It's got a lovely, mythical, mystical true-self-orienting feel I think you'll understand :)

here's a link to US Amazon, just to see what it looks like

Thanks so much for the recommendation!
