Time in the desert

I really didn't set out to make a landscape with this page, but when I put the colours on, it just spoke to me of desert. Even the collage elements in the background looked like rocks.

In some ways I feel like I'm in a desert at the moment. Things are growing, but so so slowly. The ground is hard. The light is shining on me and exposing those things I'd rather not look at and there's very little shade to escape to.

Time in the desert feels hard and long, but it is also the place where there are few distractions and you come to the end of yourself.

And that's when you start to hear, to see, to learn.

Time in the desert always births something.
