MY PHOTO IN San Diego Reader Magazine

Photo detailTHE JOSHUA TREES ARE NATURE’S SYMBOL OF STOICISM. THEY STAND AS SENTINELS IN THE

HIGH DESERTS OF CALIFORNIA PROVIDING SUSTENANCE TO OTHER DESERT LIFE FORMS. THEY

MAINTAIN A DEEP AND WIDESPREAD ROOT SYSTEM WHICH IS NATURE’S REMINDER FOR HUMANS

TO UNDERSTAND THEIR ROOTS IN NATURE. WHEN YOU FOCUS ON THE JOSHUA TREES, THEY

APPEAR TO HAVE THEIR BRANCHES RAISED TO THE COSMOS IN PERPETUAL REVERENCE AND

PRAYER. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT MANY MODERN HUMANS HAVE FORGOTTEN TO DO EVEN ONCE

A WEEK.

    Thank you, Joyce and Joann! At night I could see about 50 Jack Rabbits coming out of the desert holes and munch on people\s lawns. They are so CUTE!!! Their ears are about three times longer than their bodies :)

    Where others see blank space, I see a variety of life and know there is more beyond my sight. The desert is full of life, and stars at night. Lovely photo.

    wow, you just sent that photo in and got it published recently? I remember you showed me this photo before. It certainly captures the barrenness of the area!
