INTO THE DUNES

March 05, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The waste places of the earth, the barren desserts, the tracts forsaken of men

and given over to loneliness, have a peculiar attraction of their own.

The weird solitude, the great silence, the grim desolation, are the very things

with which every desert wanderer eventually falls in love.

- John C. Van Dyke, The Desert, 1901.
