I am surprised at how lush it is here! There is water dripping off of every tree. Such wealth! For as all desert dwellers know, water is the ultimate
wealth, far beyond gold, jewels, or paper money. Do the people here realize what water-wealth they have? (Yeah, I sound like a character from Dune. So
be it. Call me Shadat Partygirl).
To much of anything will give make you hate it with a passion, for instance up here in the northwest from what I remember a couple of years ago,
oh there was water everywhere. It fell from the sky in buckets some days, so much so that it got depressing and made you not even want to get up in
the morning and face the gray and wet sky's.
But for you desert dwellers I guess it would be impressive, however wealth... nah. The world has not come to that...yet..or at least not in these
part's of the world. One thing about deserts as you know already, if you stay long enough in them you start seeing all kinds of things, mirages,
bugs, snakes, lost whispers and lost voices, mostly your own voice will come to you as a stranger, once you get lost.
And even lots of other strange things like buildings and worlds, and the bones of buildings and worlds, and even spirits both evil, and not so
evil, and off-course the desert gods, and sometimes even the same old god that resides in the desert and all that is barren and void.
But the one thing you would want to see the most, but always turns out to be more of a complete and total illusion then all the others. That one
thing is always the oasis and water.
Basically what I am saying is, don't forget to bring your water containers when going in the dessert
