The desert stretches out red and white, its surface gently curving. The heat and sun reflect on the surface, making me think of hot days and dry air. Over the top the lizard runs, cool as the blood that flows within its body. Unlike me, it is able to survive extremes of temperature. I long to run for shelter. Yet I continue to lie under the harsh sun, watching as the lizard scurries across the desert surface busy with its daily chores.

As a child I was lucky to spend many days in the changing colors of the desert beyond the reach of the internet. Camping trips were a time of observation, for absorbing the colors, sights and sounds of the world around me. The memories of these trips stay with me, even now that I am half a world away in another country and a very different time zone.
